As a VISTA at Epilepsy Foundation Texas you will help end poverty by increasing awareness of epilepsy and engaging the community through the development of community events and fundraisers. Major activities will be centered on the development of Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk for Epilepsy, a family oriented fund and awareness raising event. The VISTA will mobilize current volunteers and board members in the Fort Worth community and seek out new clients, families and local organizations for partnerships, coordinate peer-to-peer fundraising, expand media contacts, and develop a media kit for the Fort Worth Sharon’s Ride event. VISTAs serve their communities through indirect service. The programs developed by the VISTA will endure for years, however the VISTA member will have limited interaction with Epilepsy Foundation Texas’ clients and will be based in an office setting. Applicants should possess excellent written and oral communication skills, community organization and fundraising knowledge.
