UWP is excited to offer United Ways the opportunity to partner with VISTA through UWP. UWP can aggregate VISTA sites to prepare a more viable VISTA project to CNCS funders. UWP is opening the opportunity for some local United Ways in different geographies to join the project. Due to recruitment shortages, we will be accepting United Ways only in areas that do not compete with current sites. Current sites are:

Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way (Northumberland, Snyder, and Union Counties)
United Way of Bucks County
United Way of Columbia & Montour County
United Way of Lancaster County
United Way of Lebanon County

AmeriCorps VISTA members  are volunteers who commit at least one year to work to fight poverty in local communities. They join to build capacity in the community by creating new programs or expanding already existing ones. United Ways who are looking to build capacity in the following areas may benefit from a VISTA member:

  • Economic Opportunity: Safe and affordable housing (including legal aid strategies to support safe and affordable housing) and employment training and access 
  • Education: Improved school readiness and academic performance in K-12 schools, increased graduation rates, and college enrollment and retention 
  • Healthy Futures: Improved access to nutritious foods and health care, and response to the opioid epidemic 
  • Veterans and Military Families: Providing service to veterans and military families

If you’re interested in learning more about the VISTA program, please plan to attend our Webinar. We will discuss the process to apply as an AmeriCorpa VISTA site.
