Description

OneStar Foundation (OneStar), located in Austin, Texas is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to strengthen the capacity of the nonprofit infrastructure to enable communities to more effectively solve social challenges. As part of this mission, OneStar established the OneStar Foundation Statewide VISTA Intermediary Program in 2014. After launching with 3 members at 2 host sites in August 2014, OneStar now sponsors about 40 members at 24 host sites across Texas. These VISTAs are fighting poverty through their service in Disaster Services, Economic Opportunity, Education, Veterans and Families, and Healthy Futures. OneStar is seeking an AmeriCorps VISTA Leader to provide leadership, peer development, and training to OneStar VISTA members across Texas. Since this Statewide VISTA Intermediary Project is growing rapidly, the OneStar VISTA Leader will have the opportunity to play a key leadership role in program development and helping members build a lifelong connection to service. **Note: you must have at least one year previous AmeriCorps or AmeriCorps VISTA experience to apply as a VISTA Leader**

The AmeriCorps VISTA Leader will help build the capacity of OneStar Foundation’s Statewide VISTA Intermediary Program by providing training, peer development, and support to OneStar VISTA members across Texas. The Leader will mentor and coordinate teams of VISTA members throughout the state, and develop and provide members with resources. In collaboration with the OneStar AmeriCorps VISTA Program Specialist, the VISTA Leader will help recruit and support incoming VISTA members. The VISTA Leader will also help create professional development trainings in collaboration with OneStar staff. Additionally, the VISTA leader will develop tools to highlight the service of the VISTA members that he or she supports to help ensure that all VISTAs feel supported and appreciated. Some light travel will be required for the position.
