What if you dedicated one year to fighting poverty in America, while gaining new skills, learning about nonprofit work, and building a valuable network?
AmeriCorps is your moment to take the path less traveled, to break the status quo, to stop talking about the problem and contribute to the solution. Join AmeriCorps VISTA to serve your community full-time for one year.
Think Tank’s AmeriCorps VISTA project maintains an emphasis on addressing the root causes of poverty and systemic barriers to those in poverty. VISTA members help nonprofits strengthen their impact in a variety of ways such as projects that focus on marketing, volunteer recruitment, program development, resource development and more.
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) exists to play a vital role in supporting and encouraging the values of citizenship, service, and responsibility across the United States.
Think Tank partners with CNCS to provide opportunities for individuals across the state of Ohio, and through select national partners, to serve their community as an AmeriCorps VISTA.
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to meet our nation’s most pressing challenges and advance local solutions.
VISTA members help local nonprofit organizations address compelling community issues by committing a year of service to build the organization’s capacity to have greater impact. VISTA members receive a monthly stipend, benefits, and a significant student loan credit or education benefit at the end of their service term.
VISTA applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Placements occur throughout the year.
