Summer Associates VISTA Program

Please consider this exciting opportunity to contribute to our mission, gain valuable work experience! 

The AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates Program offers individuals the opportunity to become engaged with the community through an existing AmeriCorps VISTA Program for 10 weeks over the summer. All United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley VISTA assignments will expand capacity toward population level goals across the region. UWGLV strives to create population level change in areas of education, food access, emergency services and healthy aging to ensure individuals who experience crisis have the supports they need to rebound. All Summer Associates receive a living allowance and education award for their 10-week term.
