Who are VISTAs?

NT Giving Day Sarah Lehman and Nate Dears

AmeriCorps VISTA members are passionate and committed to their mission to bring individuals and communities out of poverty. Members make a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency.

They focus their efforts to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.

VISTA members come from all walks of life but must meet certain qualifications and agree to abide by certain rules and expectations established by the AmeriCorps VISTA program and the sponsoring organization.
