AmeriCorps and the Greater Reading Nonprofit Internship Program
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a national service program that for 50 years has been at the forefront of building the capacity of communities to fight poverty. VISTA members devote a year or more of their lives to address poverty’s root causes. They do this by mobilizing community volunteers and local resources, and by increasing the capacity of people in low-income communities to rely on themselves. To achieve its program purpose, VISTA operates under the core principles of anti-poverty focus, community empowerment, sustainable solutions, and capacity building.
Alvernia University’s Office of Career Development developed a VISTA supported project, to offer low-income, first-generation college-aged students the opportunity to develop career-readiness skills through real-world experiences. The Greater Reading Nonprofit Internship Program aims to increase connections between local nonprofit organization and Alvernia University students. The experience will contribute to student’s professional development by providing real-world learning experiences, networking opportunities, leadership and teamwork skills, and career exploration. The AmeriCorps *VISTA member will serve as a liaison with nonprofit organizations embedded in the Greater Reading community to help develop internships with the hope that these experiences will foster a passion for philanthropic work. The VISTA member will connect qualified students with organizations based on need, offer career-education and career-planning opportunities for students, and track student learning outcomes as part of this project.
