AmeriCorps VISTA position at JFCS in Teaneck, NJ @ Club Ed After-School Program

AmeriCorps VISTA is a federally funded program geared toward college graduates who want to make a difference.

Participation in AmeriCorps VISTA is a way to help those in need through a non-profit organization. After one year growing and learning as a VISTA member, you will be ready for a robust employment opportunity or your graduate school education [see below for details on AmeriCorps’ Segal Education Award, valued at $5,920.00]

Minimum Requirements:  College degree (Associates or Bachelor’s) and strong technology skills

Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey (JFCS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Teaneck, NJ with additional locations in Fair Lawn and Wayne. We aim to serve the entire community through a variety of services, including Mental Health Services, Senior Care, Aid & Advocacy, Food Pantries (two), Re-Launch Career Services, and Club Ed.

Club Ed, a JFCS program, is an affordable, quality afterschool program serving five predominately low-income school districts in the area. It is not only a safe haven for children with working parents, but also an enriching experience, where children receive homework help/tutoring, creative arts classes and physical education. Those who attend Club Ed have become better students and as a result have fallen in love with learning. At the same time, parents are able to complete their own work days knowing that their children are well cared for.

Afterschool care, especially in Northern NJ, tends to be somewhat expensive for modest income families… Club Ed to the rescue!  We are currently expanding to other low-income school districts which desperately need affordable, quality afterschool care.  This is a tremendous asset to working parents who often struggle to make ends meet.

DUTIES:

As an AmeriCorps VISTA, you will be working closely with the Club Ed Director to maintain and grow existing Club Ed locations while helping to expand to other districts and support NJ families to provide the best care for their children.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Help to develop a strategy to engage prospective new school districts

Founded in 1964, the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships is the nation’s premiere program for leadership and public service. The White House Fellowship offers exceptional Americans first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the Federal government. After a competitive application process, selected individuals spend a year in Washington, D.C. working as a full-time, paid Fellow aiding Cabinet Secretaries, senior White House staff, and other top-ranking government officials. Fellows also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors. Fellowships are awarded on a strictly non-partisan basis.

PROGRAM MISSION 

In the words of President Lyndon B. Johnson, the purpose of the White House Fellows Program is “to give the  Fellows first-hand, high-level experience with the workings of the Federal Government and to increase their sense    of participation in our national affairs.” In describing the criteria for selection, President Johnson envisioned Fellows who “have demonstrated high moral character, exceptional ability, marked leadership qualities, and unusual promise of future development.” For 50 years, the White House Fellows program has delivered on this vision. After their year of service, Fellows are expected to take their acquired skills and knowledge back to their communities to work as private citizens and as national leaders in their fields.

SELECTION CRITERIA

  • A record of remarkable professional achievement early in one’s career.
  • Evidence of leadership skills and the potential for further growth.
  • A demonstrated commitment to public service.
  • The skills to succeed at the highest levels of the Federal government, and the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

APPLICANT ELIGIBILITY

  • Applicant must be a U.S. citizen.
  • Federal government employees are not eligible, with the exception of career military personnel and some special government employees.
  • Applicants must have completed their undergraduate education.
  • Applications are available online in November and are due in January of each year and the Fellowship runs from August to August.

WORK PLACEMENT

The primary aim of the Fellowship is to place the Fellows in a work environment where positive role models provide mentorship and guidance and where they can make the greatest contribution. The work placement should tap the Fellows’ full capacity and develop their abilities further. Fellows are not always assigned to a Federal agency associated with the Fellow’s area of expertise.

EDUCATION PROGRAM

The education program supplements the Fellows’ experience in their placements. The education component of the program provides off-the-record, candid discussions with distinguished leaders. Through the education program, Fellows gain valuable insights into the decision-making processes used to solve complex issues. They also learn about various management philosophies and leadership styles.

CLASS FELLOWSHIP  

Among the most enriching components of the program is class fellowship, which often results in enduring friendships. Alumni convene at yearly meetings in Washington, D.C. and welcome new Fellows into one of the most prestigious networks of professionals and leaders in the country.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Community service is a key component of the White House Fellowship. Fellows have a strong legacy of service to their communities and have consistently participated in community service projects throughout their year in Washington, D.C.

An important outcome of the Fellowship is to foster greater military-civilian engagement and understanding. Through a variety of activities, Fellows gain a deeper understanding about the important contributions of our service men and women, and the operations of our military. This component is among the most enriching aspects of the White House Fellowship and what makes the program truly unique and rewarding.

IMPACT OF THE FELLOWSHIP

Fellows make notable contributions during their year of service and continue to impact our communities, our country, and the world. Since 1964, over 700 Americans have participated in the White House Fellows program. Among them are prominent public and private sector leaders like Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Secretary Elaine Chao, United States Ambassador to Japan, Bill Hagerty, and former Secretary of State General Colin Powell, who described the program as a “turning point” in his career. While these distinguished individuals are well- known, the ranks of the fellows alumni also include a Soldier’s Medal recipient, the U.S. Army’s highest decoration for valor in a non-combat situation, awarded for bravery exhibited during the Boston Marathon bombing, CEOs, teachers, social entrepreneurs, scientists, and founders of nonprofit organizations who we are proud to count as White House Fellows. Through this rich diversity of talent and experience, the Fellows family is united by an enduring commitment to public service.
