United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley has begun our search for our 2015-2016 AmeriCorps VISTAs! Please consider this exciting opportunity to contribute to our mission, gain valuable work experience and receive a small living allowance all at the same time.

The United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley has committed to a goal of increasing the number of students reading on grade level by 2022. To reach this goal we will mobilize and coordinate a host of community partners to join the movement, align their efforts, raise the quality of strategies and programs delivered and value and celebrate a collective impact with students and families. We will accomplish this goal by leveraging individual, programmatic and systemic changes intentionally brought about through the implementation of the United Way Community School Model.

An AmeriCorps VISTA assignment is unpaid and lasts for one year. Participants must be 18 years of age and receive an end-of-service stipend or education award, health coverage, training, a relocation allowance, a living allowance and childcare assistance if eligible. The work is full-time and paid work outside of the sponsoring agency is prohibited.

Our AmeriCorps VISTAs work closely with our education team, most assignments are based in our community schools. 8 assignments are currently posted.
