New WCI and CPRI VISTA Positions Now Available

New VISTA Positions available with CPRI and the Welcoming Communities Initiative

Welcoming Communities Initiative (WCI) Community Engagement Specialist

Texas Impact is currently recruiting AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers interested in spearheading projects to help meet the needs of a growing population of unaccompanied minor immigrants in Texas, including providing support to the caregivers of this vulnerable population.

As part of this effort, the Welcoming Communities Initiative (WCI) hopes to establish and support a network of community and faith-based organizations already engaged in addressing humanitarian crises, and the current crisis of unaccompanied minors in Texas in particular.  The AmeriCorps VISTA WCI Community Engagement Specialist will identify unmet needs of vulnerable populations, bring leaders of differing religious traditions together, and establish protocols, materials, and processes for assistance.
