"AmeriCorps is more than a service opportunity – it’s a community builder. The VIP program is a great fit for anyone looking to gain work experience in a way that has the
potential to make a tangible difference."

–Lauren Kraft, AmeriCorps VIP

Jewish Family Service is proud to host the AmeriCorps Volunteer Infrastructure Project (VIP) for San Diego County. JFS will train and coach AmeriCorps VIP Fellows in the best practices of volunteer recruitment and management. They will then be placed within nonprofits throughout the community to develop and enhance existing volunteer programs.

We serve. We lead. We get things done. We are VIP.

Through the Volunteer Infrastructure Project (VIP), teams of AmeriCorps members are placed in communities to provide infrastructure support for volunteer programs in service organizations across California. Through 1,700 hours of service, Fellows build the systems necessary for organizations to have volunteer programs for years to come, ensuring that services can continue to those most in need. VIP Fellows work behind-the-scenes of service, allowing volunteers to take part in necessary programs and ensuring that the community’s needs are met.

“Public service work for organizations like AmeriCorps, Teach for America, or the Peace Corps can be a gateway to a variety of careers, including those outside public service.”
