Job Opening: Jesuit Volunteer/AmeriCorps Member


Description

Social Service Navigator / Volunteer Coordinator

Team

Engage in a meaningful year of service and community with JVC Northwest! For one year, Jesuit Volunteer (JV)/AmeriCorps members serve local organizations across the Pacific Northwest, helping them address a pressing community need that they’ve identified. By living together in intentional community, JV/AmeriCorps members lean on each other for personal growth in the four core values of community, simple living, social and ecological justice, and spirituality/reflection. Here at Pueblo Unido PDX, we are looking to fill the role of Social Service Navigator / Volunteer Coordinator with a JV/AmeriCorps member for the 2022-23 service year that begins in August. The JV/AmeriCorps member will work alongside our navigation team to connect community members with vulnerable immigration status to social services and other wraparound supports that promote family stability and prosperity. The JV/AmeriCorps member will also recruit and coordinate volunteers to help organize community events, perform outreach, create educational materials, and more. We are actively seeking fluent Spanish speakers to fill this role. All JV/AmeriCorps members will be provided with a living stipend, communal housing, health insurance, potential student loan forbearance, and a $6,495 AmeriCorps Education Award to be used towards future tuition or to pay back qualified student loans.
