We know you like to hear stories from our AmeriCorps*VISTA members, and why wouldn’t you? During their year of service, VISTA members bring passion and idealism to the amazing work they do, and they’ve been behind the scenes on many of our most successful initiatives.
Because of our long history with national service, GHCC is pleased to announce we are becoming a VISTA sponsor site. This means we will have a number of VISTA slots available and are currently soliciting proposals from qualified organizations in Greater Homewood.
If your organization wants to increase its ability to assist underserved communities, look no further! Your organization may benefit from hosting an AmeriCorps*VISTA (Volunteer In Service To America) member. GHCC is accepting applications from Baltimore City non-profit agencies, service agencies, and community organizations to fill 10 AmeriCorps*VISTA project slots for service terms beginning in July 2011 and ending in July 2012. VISTA members provide one year of full-time service at their host organization.
RFP applications are due on February 22, 2011 by 9:00 a.m.
We will hold an informal pre-proposal workshop on Tuesday, February 8 at 5:30 p.m. at GHCC’s main office (3503 N. Charles Street) for applicants interested in obtaining more information about being a service site.
Think a VISTA service project might be just what your organization needs? Please RSVP to Glenda Garcia at 410-261-3618 or email@example.com to reserve a space at the workshop.
