Are you interested in joining our team?

We’re recruiting for our June cohort!

What would I do as a C-N VISTA Fellow?

C-N VISTA Fellows will address social justice issues throughout their term of service. Each VISTA is matched with a service site at a non-profit partner in Knox or Jefferson County where they connect the resources of our campus and the communities to further strengthen their work. To see what our current VISTA members are doing at their sites, check out our C-N VISTA blog: http://www.cnvistafellows.wordpress.com

How will I be supported?

Our program is dedicated to supporting the VISTA member throughout their term through one-on-one mentoring, regular training, VISTA member meetings, and support as a member transitions in and out of service.

What positions are available?

We currently have 4 open positions–2 in Knox County and 2 in Jefferson County. Positions vary and may include grant writing, fundraising, volunteer recruitment, program development, and program coordination.

  • Bonner Center Technology Coordinator: This project will provide connections between the campus and community to increase access to and awareness of resources for those experiencing poverty. The primary focus of the work will be increasing access through the development of a web based platform that also increases campus and community organizational capacity to serve the people of Jefferson County. By increasing access to resources, our program and our community partners will be more equipped to reduce poverty in our community. Find more information and apply here.
