Alumni and Volunteer Coordinator (VISTA)
- Miami, US, Miami, FL
Take Stock in Children was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education.
The mission of Take Stock in Children is to passionately promote
personal growth, self-responsibility, and academic success for
deserving low-income children by providing a unique set of
resources including mentors, scholarships, long-term support, student
advocacy, and a guaranteed educational opportunity.

VISTA members generally do not provide direct services, such as tutoring children or building homes. Instead, they focus their efforts on building the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of the organizations in which they serve. VISTA members recruited by TSIC will develop programs that build organizational capacity in the area of Miami Dade County;
- Volunteer Recruitment, Retention, and Training
- Alumni Engagement
In each case, you’ll be strengthening the Take Stock in Children organization so we can continue to provide scholarships, mentors and hope.
TSIC VISTA members should have a college degree or post-secondary certification, be creative, passionate, hard-working and committed to bringing individuals and communities out of poverty through education.
