YWCA Missoula Hiring AmeriCorps VISTAs for Domestic Violence and Housing Programs

The YWCA depends on hundreds of volunteers to help provide services to men, women, and children in our community. Volunteers cook meals, answer the crisis line and facilitate support groups – just to name a few.

Some volunteers dedicate an entire year of full-time service in our Pathways Children’s Programand Transitional Housing Programs. These AmeriCorps Volunteers In Service to America (VISTA) build capacity for YWCA programs by applying for grant funding, creating databases to better track grant information, organizing children’s advocate volunteers, and giving presentations to community members about our services. The YWCA also utilizes other AmeriCorps programs such as Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Senior Corps and Compact Service Corps.
