VISTA logoApplications are still being accepted for two AmeriCorps VISTA Member positions and one VISTA Leader position to serve under PCRG’s Reimagining Communities Initiative.

These positions are a great opportunity for individuals seeking to gain valuable full-time professional experience in community development while positively impacting neighborhoods through a year of service.

In addition to a living allowance, VISTA Members and Leaders are eligible to receive a cash or education award that can be used to pay for school or to pay back qualified student loans upon completion of a full service term. VISTAs are permitted to obtain or retain outside employment on a part-time basis upon approval from the program manager. There are also health care and child care benefits available to eligible VISTA Members and Leaders.

Below are links to the Opportunity Listings. All applications MUST be submitted through the VISTA Portal, so those interested will need to create an account there to apply. The application deadlines for each position are listed, however, applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants must be available to begin the one-year term at their site on the listed start date.
