Do you want to give back to your local community AND earn money for college or student loans? Join the nationwide network of AmeriCorps VISTA members at Child & Family Services in Traverse City!

Child & Family Services of Northwestern Michigan (CFS) is an 80+ year old nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting children and youth as they heal and grow.

VISTAs support the “behind the scenes” work being done at CFS by helping the organization with capacity building activities – marketing, fundraising, data collection, creating or updating systems and tools, communications, building or strengthening partnerships, expanding current CFS programs, and more! Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, VISTAs will tele-serve until CFS offices safely re-open, at which time in-person service will resume. CFS will ensure candidates have the tools and training necessary to serve virtually from home.

Qualifications: Must commit to serve a one-year, 365-day term of service averaging 40 hours per week. Must pass all required background and reference checks and complete any other AmeriCorps or CFS eligibility requirements. High School diploma or equivalent required. Some college preferred. Must be at least 18 years old and be a US citizen or legal permanent resident. VISTAs may be current students or have outside employment, understanding that neither school nor work will conflict with the member’s service hours.

Must be dependable, work well independently and with a team, have a positive attitude, and be willing to learn new skills. Must possess excellent written and oral communication skills, have reliable transportation, and be proficient with computers including Microsoft Office products.

Benefits:

· Living Stipend: VISTAs receive a bi-weekly living stipend of about $480, for a total stipend of $12,490 paid over one-year.

· Personal and Sick Leave: VISTAs earn up to 10 days of personal leave and up to 10 days of sick leave during their yearlong term.

· Education Award: Upon successful completion of the entire term, members earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of about $6,000 that can be used towards eligible post-secondary education expenses, or a cash stipend of about $1,800. Visit americorps.gov/members-volunteers/segal-americorps-education-award for more information about the AmeriCorps education award.

· Student Loan Relief: VISTAs may be eligible for student loan relief programs during their term of service based on their individual circumstances. This may include deferment, forbearance, loan forgiveness, and/or interest payments.

· Professional Development & Training: We want you to be successful and have a mutually-beneficial experience while at CFS. To achieve this, VISTA members receive a wide-variety of professional development and training opportunities based on the position, skills, interests, and available opportunities.

· Non-Competitive Eligibility: AmeriCorps VISTA members earn federal non-competitive eligibility, giving members an edge in the federal hiring process.

· Other Benefits: VISTAs receive basic health insurance coverage. Childcare assistance and other benefits may be available to eligible candidates. Visit https://americorps.gov/members-volunteers/your-benefits to learn more about VISTA service and benefits.

The internship focuses on 6 key traits all restaurant managers need to have:

1. Communication: One of the most important skills restaurant managers need to master to be successful is their communication. Not only their communication with their team members, but communication with the guests of the restaurant. As a Stafford's Restaurant Manager Intern, you will be taught how to communicate effectively with team members; such as informing them of daily specials, handling issues between two or more team members and/or conflict between team members and guests. Interns will also be giving the opportunity to communicate with guests by being taught how to greet tables in a genuine and polite manner, greeting guests as they enter the restaurant, and also handling guest complaints.

Kitchen: Interns will also learn how to effectively learn how to communicate with the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the house. Proper communication is a necessity in ensuring a smooth and successful shift. Learning who to speak to in the kitchen and when is it appropriate to speak to the kitchen staff is essential.

Non-verbal Communication: Not all communication is verbal. The way you dress, body language, and even the way you hold your hands says a lot. Intern managers will be given instructions on how to be aware of their nonverbal communication and control bad habits that can communicate the wrong message to guests and staff.

Communication is key, and understanding how to communicate properly will not only help you in managing a restaurant, but will also help you become a better manager.

2. Problem Solving: Restaurants are an ever evolving and changing organism. Each day brings about something new and interesting to experience. Manager Interns will learn how to think fast on their feet, solve problems, and come up with viable solutions. Examples of this could be:
• Team members calling in sick
• Cancelation of reservation
• Navigate/plan large parties

Problem solving requires quick and decisive decision making that will be mastered all throughout the course
of the summer internship.

3. Managing: As an Intern Manager for Stafford's Hospitality, YOU ARE A MANAGER. You will be responsible for handling cash at the end of the night. This will require you to be responsible for counting all the tills and server cash outs, properly locking up the safe and manager's office.

As an Intern Manager for Stafford's Hospitality, you will be given every opportunity to learn about the Hospitality industry and what is required to be a manager, and hopefully grow as a manager.

4. Accountability: Again, as an Intern Manager, YOU ARE A MANAGER. That means you will be taught how to manage people. Managing people requires holding people accountable. The restaurant industry attracts people from all walks of life. Accountability is an important skill to that you will learn because not only does it protect the integrity of the restaurant, but also protects the team members and guests that are in the restaurant.

5. Leadership: Throughout this internship you will discover your personal leadership style and identify opportunities for developing your leadership skills. You will be giving the opportunity to motivate and lead a team through pit stops, staff meeting and everyday tasks. Leadership is an important part of this internship because it will help you identify and build techniques to help better manage your team.

6. Have Fun: Lastly have fun! Work does not have to be boring or unpleasant. The Hospitality industry is an exciting and is a fast-paced work environment. Having fun is the whole point of working in this industry. Managers set the tone of the work environment. If a manager is upbeat and positive, then most likely their team members will be upbeat and positive, which will then be perceived by the guests which will help make their experience in the restaurant more enjoyable.
