Middlebury College Office of Community Engagement is in the process of recruiting and eventually hiring two AmeriCorps VISTAs for the upcoming 2016/2017 year.
“Shepherd Interns from across the country are highly equipped with knowledge and experience in areas of poverty alleviation,” writes Ellie Bacon, Wooster College and Shepherd Intern alumna.
“I, myself, was a Shepherd Intern from the College of Wooster and then made my way to Middlebury as the VISTA for this past year. It has been an amazing fit, particularly with my previous knowledge and connection with the SHECP Consortium and Internships.”
Middlebury College Community Engagement will be supporting 2 AmeriCorps*VISTA members for the 2016/2017 year:
