AmeriCorps VISTA

The AmeriCorps VISTA (“Volunteers in Service to America”) is a national service program that places 80,000 full-time members into intensive service positions at non-profit, faith-based, and other community organizations and public agencies across the country. Founded in 1965 by President John F. Kennedy, AmeriCorps VISTA is similar to the PeaceCorps program, as it was also developed with intention of creating and expanding programs that bring low-income individuals and communities out of poverty while offering young adults the chance to learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for American citizenship.
