Host an NYIC VISTA

During the beginning of the calendar year, the NYIC provides its Members with an opportunity to apply to be a host site for a NYIC VISTA. NYIC VISTAs are AmeriCorps VISTAs who - through the NYIC - engage in full-time paraprofessional service for 12 months at a host organization, where they work on capacity-building projects in support of the host organization's immigrant-focused and anti-poverty programs/services. The capacity-building projects that NYIC VISTAs can work on include: coalition-building, communications, community outreach, fundraising, program development and volunteer management.
