Cultural Exchange and Mentoring Coordinator (AmeriCorps VISTA position)
The AmeriCorps VISTA Cultural Exchange and Mentoring Coordinator builds KRM’s capacity to develop and refine cultural exchange and mentoring programs for newly-arrived refugees in need of social support. The primary goal for the project is to continue to grow programming for refugees in need of support. This will entail the following: outreach to increase culturally competent mentorship, evaluation of the programs’ placement process to improve the quality of mentor/mentee matches, implementation of evaluation tools to measure positive program outcomes, creation and implementation of professional development opportunities for mentors, and, in conjunction with KRM staff, development of a plan for the continuation of the programs past the end of the VISTA volunteer’s term.
This is a full-time, year-long volunteer position through the AmeriCorps VISTA program. The projected service dates are June 10, 2020, through June 9, 2021. The position is contingent on acceptance into the AmeriCorps VISTA program, and the service start date is dependent on the AmeriCorps VISTA’s Pre-Service Orientation dates for new VISTA members.
