About the organization

AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a national service program that focuses on projects aiming to alleviate poverty in communities across the country. The City of Austin currently has 22 VISTA members serving in departments across the city.

VISTA members make a year-long, full-time commitment to build the capacity for programs to efficiently and effectively reach their goals of serving the community, bringing individuals and communities out of poverty. AmeriCorps VISTAs primarily work on projects and tasks that are considered indirect service; the focus is working to assure projects are sustainable and can reach a larger population of people.
