Pathfinder Services seeking volunteers

Posted: Friday, June 16, 2017

Pathfinder Services is now accepting applications for a year-long volunteer position to begin in August. The new position is for Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) through AmeriCorps, a Corporation for National & Community Service.

The NeighborWorks® VISTA volunteer position will be focused on the ongoing development of processes to recruit, engage and retain volunteers and directly participate in activities to spread awareness of the programs offered by Pathfinder Services. The VISTA will be instrumental in assisting with the organization’s key events along with additional marketing and development, revenue generation and community development efforts for the organization.

“The VISTA program continues to be an outstanding partnership between Pathfinder Services, AmeriCorps, and NeighborWorks America,” states Christina West, Volunteer and Donor Relations Coordinator for Pathfinder Services. “It is a perfect opportunity for an individual to add one year of community service to their resume. Our VISTA will work hands-on in the Huntington community through our events, with our constituents, and with current and future volunteers to engage community members with our organization,” concluded West.

For more information on becoming a VISTA volunteer at Pathfinder Services please contact Christina West at (260) 356-0500 ext. 3173 or at cwest@pathfinderservices.org.

AmeriCorps VISTA provides the following benefits to its member volunteers: Child Care assistance if eligible, a $5,815 education award to reduce tuition or student loan, or end of service stipend, health insurance coverage, living allowance, relocation allowance, and training. Helpful skills include computer and technology, writing and editing, leadership, community organization, recruitment, public speaking, fundraising, and/or grant writing.
