Step By Step and the West Virginia Council of Churches is actively looking to recruit an AmeriCorps VISTA to serve in the Huntington area, in regard to supporting Foster/ Adoptive/ Kinship efforts and initiatives. This is an excellent opportunity for someone to serve both their country and community at the same time, while gaining useful work experience. Furthermore, there are some additional benefits to being a VISTA, such as an option of a cash award or educational award after 1 year of service, as well as federal noncompetitive job eligibility.


Would you happen to know of anyone in particular that may be interested in serving in your area as an AmeriCorps VISTA? If not, could you please refer me to anyone in your area that I can network with in order to place an AmeriCorps VISTA in Cabell County? I would definitely like to attend a Cabell County FRN meeting in the near future, in regard to VISTA recruitment, if you would be so kind as to share with me the details of your next FRN meeting.
