Alameda Point Collaborative (2) & SMC VISTA

Saint Mary's College of California (SMC) is teaming up with AmeriCorps VISTA to strengthen partnerships between higher education and nonprofit/public agencies in an effort to alleviate poverty and create positive social change. We host a yearly multi-campus program in which 16 AmeriCorps VISTA Members serve at nonprofit/public agencies partnering with SMC, Sonoma State University (SSU), Stanford University, University of San Diego (USD), and University of San Francisco (USF). VISTAs make a year-long (52 weeks), full-time (40 hours per week) commitment to serve on specific projects at nonprofit/public agencies. They endeavor to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of agencies that provide education & health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities. VISTAs in our program serve 1 day per week at higher education institutions and 4 days per week at nonprofit/public agencies. While the specific responsibilities are unique, each position description has three focus areas: 1. Capacity-Building Project: Reinforce the long-term efficacy and/or efficiency of the nonprofit/public agency with a specific sustainable project that should continue to benefit the agency after VISTA service. See below for more information on site-specific projects. 2. Campus-Community Liaison: Support and coordinate partnerships between the nonprofit/public agency and higher education institution. 3. Volunteer Infrastructure: Strengthen volunteer management infrastructure at the nonprofit/public organization agency and/or higher education institution.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
