The AmeriCorps VISTA member will be a full team member focused on our Glean Team program. They will be directly involved in creating programming that helps lower-income individuals increase their consumption of fresh vegetables from local farms. Key roles include: volunteer recruitment and management, fundraising, program evaluation, and public relations. They will receive support and training while working with staff on a daily basis and they will also have the ability to shape and influence our organization and its future.
RAFFL is tied to a number of statewide efforts such as the Vermont Gleaning Collective and the Farm to Plate Network. The VISTA member will be invited to participate in statewide meetings and partnership discussions.
AmeriCorps is a National Service program which offers members an opportunity to make a big difference in their life and in the lives of those around them. It’s a chance to apply skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in Vermont's communities.
