M-DCPS AmeriCorps VISTA Positions

AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) members are passionate and committed to their mission to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.  Members make a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Volunteers focus their efforts to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of the program or department they are assigned to, while gaining valuable work skills on dynamic M-DCPS teams. 

 

AmeriCorps VISTA is open to all U.S. citizens, nationals, or lawful permanent resident aliens age 18 and older. Members and Summer Associates receive a modest living allowance. Members who serve for a year also receive limited health benefit options, childcare, if needed, and other benefits. After successful completion of a term of service, members can choose to receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award or post-service stipend.
