ac_0Each year, AmeriCorps VISTA offers over 8,000 opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to address the root causes of poverty through a year of service. For over 50 years, VISTA members have been performing indirect service by developing new programs, raising funds, recruiting volunteers, managing projects, building capacity, and assisting families in breaking the cycle of poverty. PCRG is one of over 1,100 AmeriCorps VISTA sites across the country that offers these opportunities. As a host site, PCRG has VISTAs that serve in Allegheny and Washington counties, working to build capacity for non-profit organizations. And now, PCRG is looking to expand our VISTA family with one more community-minded participant in the VISTA Tenant Engagement and Community Economic Development Project (TECDev).

Through partnership with Equal Justice Works, PCRG is seeking a community advocate looking to assist and create opportunities for residents of Project-Based Section 8 US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) properties. The TECDev VISTA will work with PCRG to assist, inform, educate, and engage tenants of RAD properties regarding their rights, responsibilities and options. The VISTA will receive direct supervision from a VISTA Leader and a VISTA supervisor (both in PCRG’s office).

Please reach out to PCRG directly with any questions or head to the MyAmeriCorps.gov website to apply!

Adrie is a Central PA native and a diehard Steelers fan. She finished a degree in Social Sciences with a concentration in Communications and moved to South Florida. After finishing a service year with City Year Miami, she decided to return to a city she loves. She is enrolled at Duquesne University and hopes to finish in 2020. When she's not watching the Steelers, Pirates, or Penguins play, you can find Adrie buried in a book or enjoying the views the city has to offer.
