  • Serving as a VISTA

    Time Commitment: VISTA service is a year-long, full-time commitment. VISTAs focus their efforts on building organizational, administrative and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development and otherwise assist low-income communities.

    Professional Development: VISTAs also participate in professional development activities and receive additional training in their field of interest.

    Leadership Opportunities: After the first year of service, VISTAs can apply for VISTA Leader positions. These positions give them opportunities to continue serving through AmeriCorps and help new VISTA members as they join the program and develop their skills.

    Outside Employment & Commitments: VISTAs are expected to make the full-time commitment to their service project their priority.  VISTAs are allowed to enroll in school or hold another part-time job, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their project. They must meet the service expectations of the project supervisor and have prior approval from the project supervisor.
