About NYIC VISTA
This position is part of the NYIC VISTA program, which is run by the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) and places AmeriCorps VISTAs – referred to as NYIC VISTAs – at nonprofit organizations throughout New York State where they build organizational capacity through communications, fundraising, program development/outreach and/or volunteer management projects. The capacity that they build is then used by their host organizations to advance their work on providing community members with anti-poverty services (e.g., ESL/ESOL, legal, youth, health, housing, employment/career). NYIC VISTAs are supported by the NYIC with several multi-day in-person trainings throughout the year, weekly webinars, monthly check-ins with NYIC staff, and ongoing networking opportunities.
