What is AmeriCorps VISTA?
Founded in 1994, AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
AmeriCorps VISTA, an AmeriCorps program, provides full-time members to create and expand programs that bring low-income individuals and communities out of poverty.
AmeriCorps VISTA members are passionate and committed to their mission to bring individuals and communities out of poverty. Members make a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency. They focus their efforts to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities. A living stipend, health coverage, relocation allowance, childcare allowance, and post-service Education Award are provided.
