Become a VISTA Host Site - 2018/2019

What is AmeriCorps VISTA?

  • AmeriCorps VISTA is a National Service program specifically designed to fight poverty. The program is funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service.
  • VISTA Members are full-time volunteers who serve for a full year at a host site, building capacity for the organization through indirect service activities, including: volunteer recruitment and coordination, fundraising, marketing, and project development.  
  • Over the last service year alone, OAFC AmeriCorps VISTA Members raised $219,920 in cash and in-kind contributions for their host sites, recruited 59 new community volunteers, managed 651 existing volunteers, and provided 167 trainings to staff and volunteers.
