Cloud & Fire is looking for two AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members for the coming 2016-2017 school year. VISTA is a national program in which individuals commit to a year-long term of full-time service at a nonprofit organization. VISTAs are dedicated to building an organization’s capacity to serve the community by creating new systems or improving existing ones. The member receives biweekly stipends and an education award at the end of their service year to be used toward paying off student loans or furthering their education.
See what our current and previous VISTAs have to say about their time serving at Cloud & Fire:
” Serving at Cloud & Fire has allowed me to come out of my shell and be more outspoken. They gave me the tools to go out and explore, learn, and succeed! Because of C&F, I gained a new perspective on my community and my role in its advancement. It’s never been more apparent to me that we are a generation of creators, builders, and doers. It’s been especially inspiring to see our young people achieve their goals and move on to brighter futures.”-Lindsey, past VISTA member.
“It has been inspiring to witness so many young lives impacted by Cloud & Fire. Serving at Cloud & Fire has allowed me to be a part of something greater than myself; working alongside people of different backgrounds all coming together for the greater good of the community we serve. It’s amazing what can be accomplished when we allow our differences to unite us instead of tearing us apart.”-Sarah, current VISTA member.
