Service Year NC AmeriCorps VISTA position

Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI), Raleigh, NC

Projected Start date: November 27, 2017

Position Description:

The Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at NC State University works to ensure the economic prosperity of North Carolina. We believe that today’s complex challenges require citizens who can work together by identifying shared interests and act collaboratively to achieve common goals. The Service Year NC VISTA at IEI will work on a statewide level supporting programs that aim to improve outcomes in the Crib to Career pipeline: Kidonomics and Text, Talk, Future. Kidonomics is IEI’s current emerging issue focus, and examines the connections between early childhood investments, North Carolina’s economy, and the development of a well-trained workforce. Text, Talk, Future is an electronic texting-based secondary school program to encourage peer conversation around college and career readiness. We are looking for a go-getter – someone who is highly organized and not afraid to jump into the work and learn while doing. Much of the position will require outreach to partners all across the state, so we are looking for someone who likes making connections and feels comfortable working with many different kinds of people.

Service Year NC:

This VISTA position is part of the Service Year NC VISTA team. The Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at NC State University launched Service Year NC to make a year of full-time service – a “service year” – a common opportunity and expectation for young North Carolinians of all backgrounds. In addition to serving at their host sites, the Service Year NC VISTA team will work on a collaborative project to promote service and create volunteerism strategies for the state of North Carolina.
