AmeriCorps VISTA

About the Program

AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring their passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty.

The most pressing challenges we face as a nation require the most courageous and creative people to address them. An AmeriCorps VISTA member serves as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to advance local solutions.

Our VISTA project is looking for individuals that want to make a one-year service commitment to help link community-minded volunteers with community-based agencies fighting poverty, develop the educational and economic skill sets and opportunities of citizens who live in poverty, and provide housing, transportation, and food assistance to individuals living in poverty.

Program benefits include a living allowance, health coverage, and an educational award.
