What is AmeriCorps VISTA?
AmeriCorps VISTA (or Volunteers in Service to America) was founded as the domestic version of the Peace Corps. It is a voluntary civil society program supported by the U.S. federal government that engages adults in public service with a goal of helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.
VISTAs provide one year of full-time service to their host sites in exchange for a living allowance. VISTAs serve primarily in nonprofits, community organizations, and public agencies to create and expand programs that seek to alleviate poverty.
There are currently over 5,000 VISTA members serving in 1,200 VISTA programs nationwide.
