AmeriCorps VISTAs for Community Media & Technology Projects

"AmeriCorps*VISTA programs place full-time capacity building volunteers with organizations that are serving low-income communities.

The CTC VISTA Project places its VISTA members (50 a year) with community technology centers and other organizations that are using technology to address the needs of low-income people.

The Project is currently accepting applications from organizations that want a VISTA to work on one of the following types of projects:

Community Networking: including infrastructure or service projects, such as community ISPs or wireless community networks, and information focused projects such as community portals (websites that connect people with community resources and encourage civic participation).
Technology Assistance to Non-profits: projects which develop tools or provide services which help small non-profits use technology to build their capacity.
Digital Media: including projects which empower individuals and organizations to effectively communicate their values and advocate for their communities, and projects which engage youth in media making as means of providing technology training and media education.
Access and Inclusion: Projects that make use of assistive technology and extend technology tools, resources, and skills to people with a variety of disabilities....

It takes time to recruit a VISTA so please submit your Intent to Apply as early as possible and by April 13th at the latest."
