United Way AmeriCorps VISTAs

United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley has begun our search for our 2019-2020 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.

An AmeriCorps VISTA assignment is unpaid and lasts for one year. Participants must be 18 years of age and have a combination of community service and/or equivalent college experience.  They 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; VISTAs are permitted to do paid part-time work during their assignment to supplement their income.

Our AmeriCorps VISTAs work closely with our community team and assignments are based in our UW office, school districts and community schools. 12 assignments are currently posted. 

Sponsoring Organization: The United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley

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 and decreasing the number of people who are food insecure in the Lehigh Valley. 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.

Address: 1110 American Parkway NE, Suite F-120, Allentown, PA 18109
