AmeriCorps Vista Positions
Refugee Family Services
Stone Mountain, GA

Refugee Family Services has 4 Americorps VISTA positions opening up this summer, at the beginning of July. The four positions are the Family Literacy Coordinator, the Volunteer Coordinator, the Special Events Coordinator, and the Computer Literacy Coordinator (my position). These are one year positions, staffed through Americorps VISTA. This means technically you have to apply through Americorps, although you’ll be working at Refugee Family Services as a full-time staff member. Here’s a small description of each:

Ø       The Family Literacy Coordinator is in charge of the Family Literacy program. This program is aimed at young refugee women who would like to learn to read and speak English, but because of various reasons, are not able to leave their homes to receive ESL training. The Family Literacy Coordinator matches volunteers to families, so that they can meet in the refugees’ homes, and learn English. The Family Literacy coordinator is in charge of matching, testing, following up, and keeping track of their progress. He or she would also be responsible for looking for grants to help sustain the program, help create lesson plans, look for and train volunteers, and so on.

Ø       The Volunteer Coordinator is an essential part of RFS. He or she essentially looks for, trains, and follows up with volunteers for Afterschool, the One to One tutoring program, Family Literacy, and other events that need volunteers. He or she needs to attend various events throughout the year to recruit volunteers, as well as helping the Development team in other projects.

Ø       The Special Events Coordinator is actually a fairly new position. This person is in charge of the Young Professionals Council, and is an integral part of the Development team. He or she helps looks for grants to sustain the organization, as well as hold smaller fundraising events throughout the year. He or she also helps with the AAUW interns, and fills an essential mentorship role for them.

Ø       The Computer Literacy Coordinator is also a fairly new position. This person is in charge of the computer lab, which is located up in the Afterschool area. He or she creates lesson plans on the computer for students in Afterschool and summer camp. These lessons focus on computer literacy, as well as school subjects such as math, science, reading and writing, and so on. In addition to the responsibilities for after school, this person also creates workshops for women in the Family Literacy program, for the staff, and other RFS clients. Like all the other positions, this person is responsible for looking for grants to help sustain the position, as well as test students, and follow up on their progress.

Interested persons may apply online at:  Deadline is May 4, 2009.
