Illinois Campus Compact is now hiring team members for our 2017-2018 VISTA service year.

March 20, 2017

For over 50 years, members of AmeriCorps VISTA service corps have worked to eliminate poverty across the country. The program’s comprehensive approach addresses food security, housing, and education. VISTA members with Illinois Campus Compact work to advance the public purpose of higher education by connecting campus and community in Illinois. They create opportunities for service based experiential learning and civic engagement, interrupt the cycle of poverty by supporting low income and first generation college students, and create college readiness in underserved communities by working with tutoring centers.

AmeriCorps VISTA members are passionate and committed to their mission to bring individuals and communities out of poverty. Members make a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at college, university, or community organization. They focus their efforts to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations, leaving behind sustainable programs and initiatives.

VISTA members receive a monthly stipend, an end of service award, and other benefits. You can learn more about AmeriCorps VISTA here.
