The Office of Civic & Community Engagement at Wake Forest University welcomes applications for our 2021-22 AmeriCorps VISTA cohort, the Winston-Salem Community Action Coalition. AmeriCorps*VISTA members are placed in full-time, capacity-building roles with community organizations throughout Winston-Salem. Focused on poverty alleviation, VISTA members work in the areas of educational equity, economic empowerment, and health and food justice. VISTAs are united by their passion to make a difference; they commit to complete a year of national service and create meaningful change in our community. 

Currently, we have open VISTA positions with these non-profit VISTA sites:

Boston-Thurmond Community Network

The Forsyth Promise

Senior Services

Crosby Scholars

AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a variety of benefits while they serve their community including student loan forbearance, funding for past or future education, a living award, and professional development.   Individuals interested in learning more about AmeriCorps are invited to watch this 30-minute webinar overviewing opportunities for national service, benefits, and the WSCAC. Interested candidates can learn more about our project and apply here: https://communityengagement.wfu.edu/community-partners/vistas/.  Applications are being accepted now on a rolling basis for an August 2nd start date.

You may also reach out to our VISTA Leader, Maggie Latta-Milord, at lattamm@wfu.edu to learn more about the project and schedule a time to speak.
