Description

After 12 years of success as Philly Fellows, the region’s premier nonprofit VISTA experience is now housed and operated by PHENND. The program is largely the same, but some elements have changed. PHENND Fellows places passionate and talented college graduates with local Philadelphia nonprofits as AmeriCorps VISTA members. The program has a three-fold mission (1) Support local nonprofits fighting poverty across a wide range of issues (2) Train and retain local talent to stay and work in Philadelphia and (3) Develop the next generation of nonprofit leaders. All PHENND Fellows receive extensive professional development as a cohort. PHENND Fellows will have up to 15 specific sites for the 2018-2019 program year. Each of those positions will be listed separately on My.AmeriCorps.gov and if you have a specific interest in one or more of them, please apply for them directly. If you are not sure which organization is right for you, please apply to the generic PHENND Fellows position.

Springboard Collaborative

Springboard Collaborative closes the reading achievement gap by coaching teachers, training family members, and cultivating reading habits so that our scholars have the requisite skills to access life opportunities. The PHENND Fellow will continue building on the groundwork of our current VISTA in the implementation of our Schoolyear program. Schoolyear is designed with quarterly student goals, family workshops, and awards for participation. Springboard intends to double the number of school partner sites during the 2018-2019 year. The PHENND Fellow will review 2017-2018 data and stakeholder feedback for program improvement and will continue to monitor key performance indicators including student reading growth and family participation.
