Lifting People Out of Poverty Since 1965

AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to meet our nation’s most pressing challenges and advance local solutions.

Being an AmeriCorps VISTA member is about making a tangible difference for communities and individuals dealing with some of our Nation's biggest challenges:

  • Poverty
  • Inequity
  • Homelessness
  • Lack of access to education.

VISTA members help to build the capacity of organizations that are working to alleviate poverty all across the country. As a VISTA member you will serve in a project identified and managed by the community while earning a modest living allowance that reflects the income level of the community where you are serving.

To this day
VISTA members have served since 1965
They serve
U.S. States and all U.S. Territories

VISTA members go where they are needed and make a difference through volunteering and the mobilization of resources.

Whether in your hometown or across the country, becoming an AmeriCorps VISTA member is a unique opportunity to improve your life and the lives of fellow Americans.
