Understanding AmeriCorps: The A-B-BGCIC’S


A is for AmeriCorps VISTA

AmeriCorps is essentially an umbrella that encompasses many National Service programs, all sponsored by the Corporation for National & Community Service.

AmeriCorps VISTA is one National Service program that places full time volunteers in yearlong service positions. What does VISTA mean? VISTA stands for ‘Volunteers in Service to America’. Approximately over 8,000 VISTA members serve from approximately 1,100 sponsoring organizations, live and serve in the rural and urban areas that need it most. With passion, commitment, and hard work, they create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.
