Feerick Center for Social Justice

AmeriCorps VISTA

We Have Opportunities for You!

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 and 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 $6,495 education award (to put towards education expenses such as student loans or future tuition expenses), health coverage, and many other benefits.

Service terms begin as of May 2023.
