We seek a motivated, organized, and compassionate individual for a one-year VISTA position at Middlebury College.

The VISTA will help build capacity in programs and community partnerships that improve college aspirations and success and help children, primarily from low-income backgrounds in Addison County, thrive.
The VISTA will also build capacity around college-positive volunteerism and first-generation college student access and success by providing support to Middlebury College students as they pursue community-based endeavors.
 

The position is a one-year opportunity, from 8/20/19-8/19/20. In addition to the VISTA living stipend ($12, 227), the CCE pays $350/month in housing assistance.
