RSVP: Serving Denton County and AmeriCorps VISTA
Since 2013, RSVP: Serving Denton County has served as an Intermediary Agency for the AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) program on behalf of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
As an Intermediary Agency, RSVP: Serving Denton County partners with nonprofit organizations to develop sustainable three-year VISTA projects. We also assist nonprofits with the recruitment of full-time AmeriCorps VISTA members each year.
Through indirect service activities such as program development, volunteer recruitment, curriculum development, public relations and marketing, fundraising and event planning, grant writing, and community outreach, the VISTA members work to help nonprofits build their infrastructure and overall capacity to strengthen, expand, and sustain programs, services, and systems that end poverty. The VISTAs are placed, trained, and managed through RSVP: Serving Denton County and supervised and trained locally through the nonprofit partners.
