Serve the Community with WIN – Join AmeriCorps VISTA

Think you have to choose between helping others or a career? Think again.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider joining AmeriCorps VISTA after graduating. With AmeriCorps VISTA, you have a chance to live and serve in the community and focus on projects that improve people’s lives. For a one year commitment, you will receive a modest living allowance, a $5,815 education award (to put towards education expenses like student loans), health and childcare coverage, and many more benefits.

Most importantly, you will be working alongside community leaders and local organizations to make a lasting impact in initiatives like:

  • Ensuring people have access to quality nutrition and education, regardless of income
  • Developing safe, affordable housing that is environmentally and economically sustainable
  • Helping senior citizens keep their family homes and age in place
  • Enabling low-income residents to guide neighborhood  development and improve their community
