Background:

Volunteers for Community Impact (VCI) will launch a brand new volunteer program called The Targeted Community Impact Program.  This program will be headed by one full time employee called the Targeted Community Impact Coordinator. The program will engage two of VCI’s existing programs – FGP (The Foster Grandaparent Program) and RSVP (The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program). FGP and RSVP are sponsored by The Corporation for National & Community Service and are collectively known as Senior Corps and are limited to people older than 55 years of age.  VCI will also engage community volunteers (persons younger than 55) in the program.

This program will partner with the Citrus Council Girl Scouts Council to create Community based Girl Scout troops staffed by VCI volunteers.  Citrus Council Girl Scouts will be engaging our volunteers into a specific curricula called the Beyond Bars program, which seeks to provide assistance to young girls whose mothers are incarcerated in the criminal justice system.

Because this is a brand new program the Coordinator will have to engage with potential stations and build partnerships with agencies who share our mission in addition to recruiting volunteers for the program.
