AmeriCorps VISTA Position Open with OVEC; Deadline to Apply Dec. 7

vistaOVEC has been approved to host an AmeriCorps VISTA and we are recruiting applicants now.

The deadline to apply for this position is December 7. Applications must be made at this link. The position begins on January 30 and lasts one year.

This position requires leadership or participation in two OVEC projects that will promote sustainable economic development and renewable energy in West Virginia:

1) Help coordinate our Cabin Creek Clinic solar panel installation project to keep the clinic running during power outages and serve as a model for renewable energy options. The VISTA will assist OVEC staff in not only working with the Director of the Clinic, but also with our coalition partners, to see the project through to completion.

2) Work with OVEC staff and Boys and Girls Club employees to expand our current gardening project. One goal is to construct Outdoor Learning Environments at the two Huntington Boys and Girls Clubs. Another goal is to develop entrepreneurial opportunities around local food production. For example, the VISTA would help us install more raised beds and help with our plans for year-round gardening so the kids can sell surplus vegetables at the local food market located near the OVEC office.
