VISTA Member Raven Carr Uses Volunteer Recruitment Skills to Screen VISTA Applicants

Raven CarrRaven Carr is a VISTA member serving at Interfaith Ministries of Denton, Inc. as the Volunteer Coordinator. Interfaith’s mission is to provide emergency basic needs assistance to the people of Northern Denton County with the goal of helping those people to become self-sufficient. Raven has realized that her year of VISTA is coming to a close and has taken the necessary steps to help her host agency find her replacement anyway she can. She was been active in the screening process by calling possible candidates and telling them what the VISTA position consists of and what the agency expects from the person that fills that position. Raven and her supervisor have agreed on a candidate that they both feel is highly qualified for the position. This candidate has already been active helping Interfaith with Apple Tree and knows quite a bit about what Interfaith does to help the community. The candidate was called in for an interview and to answer any questions that she may have. She later accepted the position. Raven believes that her VISTA successor has potential to do amazing things at Interfaith and can’t wait to her about them later on.
