Site Supervisor: Kadie Schaeffer
38 Elm Street, Montpelier, VT 05601-0627
Must have completed a term as an A*VISTA member prior to applying for this position.
VYT service sites promote or actively engage youth in high quality academic and employment skills building programs, agriculture and environmental programs, nutrition and physical activity programs, mentoring programs, and other high-quality programs that help youth make healthy choices. A* VISTA members build organizational capacity by increasing funding, recruiting volunteers, creating new programs, implementing public relations plans. These efforts ensure that more low-income youth can participate in exiting and meaningful activities that involve them in the life of the community, and help them build the necessary skills to lift them out of poverty.
The Leader will develop systems for recruiting and retaining members, as well as serve as a resource for members and help them fulfill their assignments. The Leader will support the 27 VYT A*VISTA members by visiting them at their sites, developing training and service reflection, and planning community service activities.
This is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of a cohesive and professional team which strives to ensure that members have a successful year of service, community organizations thrive, and individuals gain skills to transcend poverty.
