Campus Compact Internship

Campus Compact

The University of Montana invites applications for AmeriCorps and VISTA members serving with the Montana Campus Compact. These national service members serve for one year in communities across Montana, helping improve high school graduation and access to postsecondary education for first generation and low-income Montanans. AmeriCorps and VISTA members recruit volunteers, build or provide in-school and after school support for K-12 students, and much more. AmeriCorps and VISTA members are paid a modest living allowance biweekly ($480/biweekly, pre-tax), are eligible for an AmeriCorps Education Award ($5,920) upon successful completion of service. Additional benefits include: a modest relocation allowance if relocating from over 100 miles, child care assistance and health coverage and professional training and development.

The University of Montana is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and has a strong institutional commitment to the principle of diversity in all areas. In that spirit, we are particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of qualified people who would assist the University in demonstrating its essential values of leadership, diversity, engagement and sustainability.
