AmeriCorps VISTA Positions
Thanks to an AmeriCorps VISTA grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service, Youth Volunteer Corps has the opportunity to launch high-quality and sustainable youth volunteer programs in under-served Missouri and Kansas communities.
Wonder what it’s like to serve with YVC? Read what past VISTAs have to say about their service.
In 2018, YVC leveraged AmeriCorps VISTA resources to launch 7 YVC programs in Columbia, MO; Jefferson City, MO; Joplin, MO; Kirksville, MO; Springfield, MO; Topeka, KS; and Wichita, KS. 119 youth served over 3,200 hours at 22 community agencies. 96% of youth volunteers surveyed said after volunteering with YVC they knew they could make a difference in their community and 92% said they were likely to volunteer again.
By providing youth with the chance to serve their hometowns while developing skills and fostering connectivity, YVC aligns with AmeriCorps VISTA’s commitment to end poverty through economic opportunity. To meet this goal, YVC recruits candidates to serve 12-month terms as AmeriCorps VISTA members. For more information, email Amanda Moser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VISTA members begin on predetermined orientation dates and will be hired approximately 3 weeks prior to their start date. These positions will likely start in the fall, however the start date may be flexible depending on candidates and availability.
