A one-year opportunity that can make a lasting impact

Since 2012, Way Finders has sponsored NeighborWorks AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members—and benefited greatly from their energy, insight, and dedication. During a one-year opportunity with us, AmeriCorps VISTA members get right to work—by creating or expanding upon a project that helps address issues faced by low-income communities. 

As a part of the Way Finders Community Building & Engagement team, AmeriCorps VISTA members:

  • Receive a living allowance and an educational award or a cash stipend
  • Attend a national training institute
  • Develop data management systems
  • Assist with grant proposals
  • Learn new skills


  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Strong ability to multi-task and work independently or as part of a team
  • Familiarity with Microsoft Office Suite
  • Preferred bi-lingual English/Spanish

How to apply

New VISTA positions open each year in early summer—sign up to receive an update when openings are posted!
