AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) is a national service program all about helping individuals reach their fullest potential. VISTA is designed to build the capacity of an organization and enhance its ability to serve the community.
VISTA members serve full-time (~40 hours/week) for one full year on projects that build the capacity of the organization. Projects can vary and are not limited to: developing outreach and marketing campaigns, building a social media presence, creating a program database, writing grants, managing a program in its first year, and recruiting volunteers. As a result, VISTA impacts both the person serving as well as the individuals served.
