Feerick Center for Social Justice

Learn About the Feerick Center for Social Justice


In the AmeriCorps VISTA program, you have a chance to serve in the community by working on a social justice project. You will work alongside community leaders and local organizations to make a lasting impact. This is a wonderful opportunity for a person passionate about economic equity, access to justice, and interested in pursuing a public interest career. AmeriCorps VISTA members commit to a one-year, full-time term of service. In exchange, you will receive a modest living allowance, a $6,345 education award (to put towards education expenses such as student loans or future tuition expenses), health coverage, and many other benefits. 

Remote Consumer Project Coordinator (APPLY HERE)

Service terms for the above roles begin as of June 2021.
