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:
- 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.
VISTA members go where they are needed and make a difference through volunteering and the mobilization of resources.
Make a Difference at Home!
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.
