North Carolina Campus Compact is currently recruiting to fill TWO AmeriCorps VISTA Leader positions. Our VISTA Leaders will support 25 full-time VISTA members serving with our NC Afterschool Corps and NC Hunger Corps.

The NC Afterschool Corps & NC Hunger Corps are teams of AmeriCorps VISTA members who are placed at a college, university, or community-based organization to build the capacity of programs that serve low-income people AND connect colleges and universities to their communities. NC Afterschool Corps members support K-12 afterschool programs, while Hunger Corps members support on- or off-campus hunger relief programs, including those assisting low-income or disadvantaged college students and staff.

The VISTA Leaders serve in the NC Campus Compact state office located at Elon University in Elon, NC.
