About the organization

AmeriCorps VISTA achieves its mission by assigning members to sponsoring organizations to build the capacity of those organizations to lift communities out of poverty. Members mobilize community resources, engage individuals in local community service, and increase the capacity of organizations to manage effective anti poverty programs. It is crucial to the concept of local self-reliance that sponsoring organizations plan for the eventual phase out of members and for the absorption of their functions by other facets of the organization or community
