UWGLV AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteers

Posted by United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley on May 14, 2019

United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley (UWGLV) has begun our search for our 2019-2020 AmeriCorps VISTAs!  The deadline to apply is 7/1/2019. Please consider this exciting opportunity to contribute to our mission, gain valuable work experience and receive a small living allowance all at the same time.

An AmeriCorps VISTA assignment is unpaid and lasts for one year. Participants must be 18 years of age and have a combination of community service and/or equivalent college experience.  They receive an end-of-service stipend or education award, health coverage, training, a relocation allowance, a living allowance and childcare assistance if eligible.  The work is full-time; VISTAs are permitted to do paid part-time work during their assignment to supplement their income.

Our AmeriCorps VISTAs work closely with our community team and assignments are based in our UW office, school districts and community schools. 12 assignments are currently posted.

Interested candidates must apply through the www.americorps.gov website. To find our listings scroll down to “How to Join” and click on “Search Positions”; in the Quick Search put in UWGLV in the program name (leave the program type and state blank).

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Jennifer Nicolosi at jennifern@unitedwayglv.org or 610-807-5741.
