Americorps VISTA is a federal program that aims to fight poverty by providing nonprofits with government-sponsored volunteers. It is a one year commitment during which the VISTA works full-time and is provided with a living wage based on the average income of the community they serve. As a VISTA here at the Ravenswood Makerspace Collaborative, you will work to benefit the Ravenswood School District. Projects will include designing programs, expanding partnerships, securing resources, coordinating volunteers, organizing maker education trainings, and linking the team and community to the larger Maker Movement. From the beginning to the end, you will receive training, become a member of the Maker VISTA community, and have a platform to succeed.
