Americorps_MLK Day of Service

VIP Fellows work to build quality, sustainable volunteer management systems at partner sites throughout San Diego County. This includes:

  • Recruiting an average of 120 volunteers each to serve at their partner site, focusing on engaging “High-Value Volunteers”: highly-skilled volunteers or volunteer leaders who make a high-value contribution to the organization and the clients it serves.
  • Building business partnerships that support the partner site through volunteer involvement and financial support.
  • Creating systems that build the organization’s capacity to utilize volunteers, such as the creation of volunteer position descriptions, development of tracking systems, and implementation of volunteer training programs.
  • Receive certification in Volunteer Management.

AmeriCorps VIP Fellow positions are full-time (1,700 hours per term of service). Service terms are September to July of the following year. AmeriCorps is not a job; it is a paid service experience. All positions pay a living allowance of $15,000 throughout the term of service. An educational award of $5,815 is paid upon completion of the service term. Members also receive health insurance, have access to subsidized child care, and are eligible for student loan deferments.

Current Opportunities Available: February 2019 – July 31, 2019
