Saluting our AmeriCorps VISTA members
We are proud to lead the VISTA program in our region
It’s National AmeriCorps Week, and we’re excited to celebrate! This year through United Way, 20 AmeriCorps VISTA members, 20 Summer Associates and 12 National Civilian Community Corps members will serve the Sacramento region! These individuals dedicate a summer or a year of their lives to bringing change to local communities across the nation. Many are assigned to projects far from where they grew up, and they gain valuable experience through their service to communities in need.
We lead the VISTA program in the Sacramento region so we know just how valuable their service is. In our region alone, the program and service of our members is valued at $419,000!
Meet Andrea Aguinaldo, a VISTA member in her third year who now serves as the VISTA Leader for the program at United Way!
