AmeriCorps VISTA Information
“Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do vounteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.“
– Gillian Anderson
“VISTA volunteers stand ready to serve at the request of every community and every neighborhood, every organization and institution, which joins the war against poverty.“
~ President Lyndon B. Johnson

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, and lack of access to education.
