Admission Possible- now hiring for 2011

Admission Possible is seeking AmeriCorps and VISTA members for Fall 2011! We will be selecting lots of talented, idealistic people and we would love your help in recruiting them. We get our best candidates from your referrals, so please take a moment to think of people who just might be passionate about changing the world - or others who might know of such people! Most often, our applicants are recent college graduates or current seniors looking for opportunities starting next fall.

We are excited each year by the quality applications we receive from all over the country, and with our recent recognition from President Obama - we were highlighted in a June 2009 speech about highly effective non-profits with growth potential - we expect the competition for these positions to be especially strong this year!

More than 70 new AmeriCorps and VISTA members will be selected
to start in the fall in both the Twin Cities and Milwaukee. The Priority Application deadline is 2/14/2011 and the Final Application Deadline is 3/7/2011. For more details on the specific positions and deadlines, as well as a short video about opportunities with Admission Possible, please visit www.AdmissionPossible.org and click on the "AmeriCorps" tab or click right here: http://www.AdmissionPossible.org/AmeriCorps.html
