Summer VISTA Opportunities

The WCSD VISTA Associates program is looking for 25 Summer VISTAs this year to help with summer knowledge loss prevention at the Boys and Girls Club and to do some high school tutoring.  At the WCSD, Summer VISTAs will work for 10 weeks starting 2 June 2017 to 11 August 2017, for 35 hours a week, and hours will generally be between Monday through Friday between 7am to 5pm.

Although Summer VISTA is not a job, it is community service, you do receive a $983 a month living allowance and at the successful completion of the 10 weeks and a $1200 Segel Education Award to use towards tuition or other education costs.  Please note that VISTAs need to be 18 years or older to apply and be able to prove that they are legally able to work in the United States.  If you are interested, please check out http://www.nationalservice.gov/programs/americorps/americorps-programs/americorps-vista/vista-summer-associates for more information.

To apply, please visit www.my.americorps.gov and build a profile and complete an application.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call Volunteer Services at 775-348-0345
