We will be conducting interviews.

November 4, 2014

Thank you all for applying to the 2014-2015 VITA Internship Program. We sincerely appreciate your interest in our program and desire to make a difference in the lives of low-income families. Due to an overwhelming number of applications this year, we were unable to offer everyone an interview.

If you did not receive an interview, please do not be discouraged. Our partners in the Yolo VITA Coalition are still in need of additional volunteers in Sacramento, Woodland, and Winters. Please be on the lookout for an email from us in a few weeks with details. Again, thank you for your interest and best of luck to all.
