Help to alleviate poverty for low-income individuals in North Carolina. The Service Year NC Program is an umbrella project that welcomes host sites tackling a wide array of poverty-related issues in North Carolina. We place members in organizations and foundations to fight poverty across the state by increasing education and job-training opportunities, creating healthier communities, and ensuring students enter school ready to learn.
We currently have one VISTA opening:
Randolph Partnership for Children
Member Duties: The VISTA at Randolph Partnership for Children will be trained by experts in the field, work directly with leaders in our community, and assist in presenting findings to our KidsReadyNC collaborative, family coalition, service providers, and town and county governments. Activities will include data research and collection using online databases and resources, data collection through surveys and interviews with local service providers, compilation of data, and analyzing and reporting data through written reports and graphics. The project will inform community partners, reduce duplication of services, help us use existing resources more efficiently, and identify and secure additional resources to close gaps. Our ideal candidate will have strong math, research, and analytical skills, be highly organized, and have a bright personality that will connect with service providers, business leaders, elected officials, and families of all backgrounds.
What makes us unique? We believe service has the power to change individuals and communities. In addition to their daily AmeriCorps VISTA service, all Service Year NC VISTAs will work together on a statewide collaborative project to promote and advance volunteerism and service across the state.
