About AmeriCorps VISTA
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to meet our nation’s most pressing challenges and advance local solutions.
Receive a modest bi-weekly living allowance to cover basic expenses. In keeping with AmeriCorps VISTA’s mission of fighting poverty, members recieve an allowance equal to the poverty level of the community in which they serve.
