Kentucky Campus Compact – Open Positions

Below are the open positions for our KyCC programs: VISTA, KCC, and KAA. Feel free to explore this website to learn about all three.

KyCC VISTA Program

If you are interested in hosting one or more of our AmeriCorps VISTA SA members, please contact Gayle Hilleke so that we can hold the slots for you. Note: There is a $1,000 participation fee to host a Summer Associate.
KyCC still has 30 VISTA Summer Associate slots in its grant that can be filled throughout Kentucky at community organizations, colleges or universities.
These AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associate (SA) members serve full-time for intensive, short terms of service lasting 8-10 weeks. Could your organization use some additional person power over the summer?
The 2022 AmeriCorps VISTA priorities will be announced soon, but food insecurity and summer learning loss are consistent themes year to year.
