Marketing Associate — Americorps VISTA

San Francisco, California, United States · Lend for America


We’re hiring a full-time person to get the word out about student-led microfinance to the 4,400 colleges and universities across the U.S. that do not yet host a Campus MFI. 

Campus MFIs are teams of college students that go off-campus and find people who need help. They spend time and motivate, give basic financial advice, and lend small amounts of money they have raised. 

Lend for America (LFA), a program of The Intersect Fund, is on a mission to bring campus microfinance to every school in the country. But, Campus MFIs are a new idea that doesn't fit neatly into the paradigms of most university academic and extra-curricular programs. That's where you come in — you'll be on the front lines of our world domination plan — selling the virtues of campus microfinance on a daily basis to students, administrators, and faculty to meet our growth goals. 

We're looking for someone who will make a major dent in the universe during a one-year VISTA term and transition to a full-time role with Lend for America (at a market salary) afterwards. The position will be based in San Francisco, CA and located at our office in SOMA.




This position is a full-time, paid volunteer position through the Americorps VISTA program

Under the program, Americorps prohibits receiving any compensation for work outside of the living stipend, either from LFA or another job. In order to make it feasible for you to live in San Francisco, however, we provide our VISTAs with additional benefits beyond the living stipend.
