Pathfinder Services announces opportunity for two new volunteers

Pathfinder Services  is now accepting applications for two new volunteer positions targeting to begin in July. The two new positions are for VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) volunteers through AmeriCorps, a Corporation for National and Community Service, and will work collaboratively with a great deal of cross over and support with Marketing and Volunteerism for Pathfinder Services.

The Marketing/Social Media VISTA volunteer position will be focused on developing and initiating marketing and social media plans to build capacity of the community stabilization programs of Pathfinder Services through social media and alternative platforms.

The Volunteer Engagement VISTA volunteer position will help design and create a comprehensive community volunteer program to help drive the community engagement efforts of Pathfinder Services.  This VISTA will develop a volunteer recruitment and management system to enable Pathfinder Services to expand quality services to clients with economic and developmental barriers.

The VISTA volunteers will be instrumental in assisting with the organization’s key events as well as additional marketing and development, revenue generation and community development efforts for the organization.

“The VISTA volunteer program continues to be an outstanding partnership between Pathfinder Services, AmeriCorps, and NeighborWorks America,” states Loretta Mottram, Senior Director of Business Development for Pathfinder Services. “It is a perfect opportunity for individuals to add one year of community service to their resume.  Our two volunteers will work hands-on in the Huntington and Fort Wayne community through our marketing events, revenue generation, branding efforts, and community involvement of our organization,” concluded Mottram.

For more information on becoming a VISTA volunteer at Pathfinder Services please contact Loretta Mottram at (260) 356-0500 Ext. 3122 or at lmottram@pathfinderservices.org by Friday, May 31.

AmeriCorps VISTA provides the following benefits to its member volunteers: Child Care allowance if appropriate, an Education Award to reduce tuition or End of Service Stipend, Health Insurance Coverage, Living Allowance, Relocation Allowance, and

Training.  Helpful skills include education or experience in Social Work, Counseling, Architectural Planning, Business/Entrepreneur, Communications, Community Organization, Public Speaking, and knowledge of local government.
