What is VISTA?
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) engages more than 8,000 individuals annually to support community efforts to overcome poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve full time for a year at nonprofit organizations or local government agencies to build the capacity of these organizations to carry out programs that alleviate poverty.

Recruit and manage volunteers, raise funds, coordinate projects, improve communities, expand their horizons, develop leadership skills, alleviate critical needs, reduce suffering, and become INSPIRATIONS.
