In partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, we are pleased to bring AmeriCorps VISTA members to our region to build capacity, expand program reach and improve the lives of those in our communities who need it most.
About the AmeriCorps VISTA Program
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) engages more than 8,000 individuals annually to support community efforts to overcome poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve full time for a year at nonprofit organizations or local government agencies to build the capacity of these organizations to carry out programs that alleviate poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members recruit and manage community volunteers, and help coordinate projects. They support programs that improve academic performance, expand job opportunities, develop financial assets, alleviate hunger, reduce homelessness, and improve health services. They also support programs that increase housing access, develop economic opportunities for low-income veterans and military families, and expand access to technology.
