The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN), in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), is seeking proposals from organizations interested in hosting AmeriCorps VISTA members for a three-year capacity-building project beginning in 2023. MCN VISTA Program members are full-time volunteers who work to strengthen, inform, and connect nonprofits working with communities furthest from justice—particularly BIPOC, immigrant, and refugee communities—in order to overcome the multiple determinants of poverty.
The event will be hosted on Zoom. You will need a computer and a phone as a back-up audio method.
