SerVermont, Vermont’s State Service Commission, has an opportunity for an individual with passion for national service to make a difference in the lives of Vermonters by serving as a National Service Program Manager. We are seeking a professional with the skillset to manage a complex grant and a passion for AmeriCorps VISTA to join our team and oversee our 30 member AmeriCorps VISTA Project.
The position will afford the right individual the opportunity to independently manage all aspects of an ever-evolving VISTA Program and bring their experience to every aspect of the program. This individual will be supporting VISTA members directly, collaborating with partner organizations to create new service opportunities, and planning and administering the federal grant. This is a great opportunity to put passion for service into practice and make a difference in the lives of Vermonters.
This position is part of a growing team that includes professionals in the national service field and comes at an exciting time when funding for national service is expanding opportunities to serve across the country. Preference will be given to candidates with national service and AmeriCorps program management experience.
Founded in 1964, AmeriCorps VISTA is the capacity building and poverty alleviation branch of AmeriCorps. Launched in 2011, the SerVermont VISTA Umbrella Project, housed within the Agency of Human Services, has placed hundreds of VISTA members at various state and local government agencies and nonprofit organizations across Vermont to build their capacity, fight poverty, and “Get Things Done”.
Vermont hosts over 2,200 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers annually at more than 400 service locations and is currently recognized as the #3 AmeriState for having the 3rd most AmeriCorps members per-capita. Additionally, SerVermont manages volunteers in the event of disasters, and supports other volunteer efforts.
