VISTA Postion in Portland Office
Pine Tree Legal Assistance is seeking a 12-month VISTA member to begin working in July 2014. The VISTA member will be focused on finding sustainable ways to maintain and increase Pine Tree’s capacity to serve veterans. Working with staff and building off two years of prior VISTA projects, the VISTA member will focus on fundraising (primarily grant writing) and developing training/presentation templates that anyone in the program can use for outreach. In addition, the VISTA member will conduct outreach to target populations.
Although the VISTA member will work closely with staff providing legal assistance to clients with low incomes, ideal candidates should have an express interest in grant writing, development and non-profit management. The accepted applicant for this position will be expected to attend a AmeriCorps Pre-Service Orientation July 8th-11th and begin at Pine Tree Legal Monday July 14, 2014.
