Youth Emergency Services & Shelter AmeriCorps VISTA-Donations Management in Des Moines, Iowa

AmeriCorps and Youth Emergency Services and Shelter (YESS) in Des Moines, Iowa, have a VISTA program volunteer opportunity available! Help YESS provide shelter to youth and mental health services to the community by managing donations and donor relations. Help us grow and expand our services by growing and expanding our funding.


The AmeriCorps VISTA will manage all donations coming into YESS, including in-kind, pledges, and online donations, to solidify YESS's donation program, thereby ensuring funding for services that break the cycles of homelessness and trauma. The VISTA will develop a long-term donation program that can be sustained in less time than currently needed, ideally using skilled volunteers in the future. The VISTA's main objectives will be to: establish usage protocols for Raiser's Edge donation platform; establish in-kind donation policies and procedures; maintain and improve donor relations; and establish a volunteer program for donation management.
