Pathfinder Services looking for two volunteers

Posted: Friday, June 14, 2013

Pathfinder Services is now accepting applications for two new volunteer positions targeting to begin in July. The two new positions are for VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) volunteers through AmeriCorps, a Corporation for national and community service, and will work collaboratively with a great deal of cross over and support with marketing and volunteerism for Pathfinder Services.

The Marketing/Social Media VISTA volunteer position will be focused on developing and initiating marketing and social media plans to build capacity of the community stabilization programs of Pathfinder Services through social media and alternative platforms.

The Volunteer Engagement VISTA volunteer position will help design and create a comprehensive community volunteer program to help drive the community engagement efforts of Pathfinder Services. This VISTA volunteer will develop a volunteer recruitment and management system to enable Pathfinder Services to expand quality services to clients with economic and developmental barriers.

AmeriCorps VISTA provides the following benefits to its member volunteers: Child care allowance if appropriate, an education award to reduce tuition or end of service stipend, health insurance coverage, living allowance, relocation allowance and training.  Helpful skills include education or experience in social work, counseling, architectural planning, business/entrepreneur, communications, community organization, public speaking and knowledge of local government.

NeighborWorks AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers will receive up to a $928 monthly stipend, a $5,550 education award, and professional development and training opportunities. VISTA volunteers must attend a pre-service orientation in July and begin service in August.

To apply, send resume and references to Loretta Mottram at lmottram@pathfinderservices.org by Tuesday, June 18. Additional questions and information about the positions are welcome by emailing Loretta or calling her at (260) 356-0500 ext. 3122.
