About the organization

Serve with the City of Phoenix as a part of the HandsOn VISTA Team! Our VISTA Director is an RPCV (Mongolia), so we understand your experience and can work with you if you are interviewing while still in country! A VISTA year can be an excellent way to transition back to the US.

The HandsOn VISTA program supports 20 VISTA members at multiple placement sites across the valley. Our VISTA members enable our community service partners to expand capacity and build lasting infrastructure by creating the processes and tools needed to effectively access and utilize valuable resources. HandsOn VISTA members will improve their own capacity for leading communities during and beyond their terms of service by developing their knowledge, skills, and abilities related to volunteer mobilization, civic engagement, and other areas. HandsOn VISTAs also receive monthly professional development training and lead a monthly community project.
