AmeriCorps VISTA

AmeriCorps VISTA logoCommunity Action is proud to be a partner with AmeriCorps VISTA which is celebrating 50 years of Volunteers in Service to America.

AmeriCorps VISTA taps the skills, talents and passion of more than 7,000 Americans annually to support community efforts to overcome poverty.

AmeriCorps VISTA members make a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a non-profit organization or public agency. They focus their efforts to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.

AmeriCorps VISTA is open to all U.S. citizens, nationals, or lawful permanent resident aliens age 18 and older. Members and Summer Associates receive a modest living allowance. Members who serve for a year also receive limited health benefit options, childcare, if needed, and other benefits.

CAPMC is an approved AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer organization and presently has one volunteer on staff. For more information on how you can participate, contact Emily Rowe, Family Services Manager at edr@capmercer.org.
