As a VISTA at Epilepsy Foundation Texas in Houston you will help families and individuals living with epilepsy receive excellent programs and services such as medical clinics and camp programs. Major activities include researching and writing grants benefitting camp programs and medical clinics. The VISTA will build on the success of camp and clinic programs to increase overall community outreach through the development of processes, presentation and training materials/manuals used for outreach and retention of donors, campers and volunteers, etc. VISTAs serve their communities through indirect service. The programs developed by the VISTA will endure for years, however the VISTA member will have limited interaction with Epilepsy Foundation Texas’ clients and will be based in an office setting. Applicants should possess excellent written and oral communication skills, community organization and grant writing skills.
VISTAs (Volunteers in Service to America) devote one year of full-time service at nonprofit organizations or local government agencies. They build the capacity of these organizations to develop, manage, and sustain programs to make poverty history. To learn more visit www.VISTANorthTexas.com or email VISTA@rsvpserves.org.
