Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS) is proud to be the San Diego County hub for AmeriCorps Volunteer Infrastructure Project (VIP). Through this statewide program, individual AmeriCorps Fellows are placed in communities to provide and implement best practices in volunteer recruitment and management.
Strengthening Volunteer Programs
VIP Fellows bring a fresh perspective, energy, and volunteer management best practices to agencies across San Diego County. They focus on building the systems necessary for organizations to increase capacity through recruitment, recognizing volunteers, building tracking systems, creating relationships with local organizations and businesses, and more.
Engaging the Next Generation of Leaders
VIP Fellows receive training in volunteer management, recruitment, and recognition in addition to professional development in topics such as networking, nonprofit management, employment, and career readiness, etc. AmeriCorps inspires members to live a life of community involvement beyond their service.
