VISTA bigWhat is AmeriCorps VISTA?

AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a national community service program with the aim of expanding and strengthening the administrative, organizational, and financial capacity of anti-poverty organizations.  VISTA Members commit to one year of full-time service, for which they receive a modest living stipend.  At the conclusion of a successful term of service, VISTA Members are eligible for either a Segal Education Award or a cash payment.

Candidates must be passionate about serving the homeless in Central Arkansas.  Other requirements include a college degree and the ability to commit to one year of service (August 12th 2014 to August 15th 2015) at Our House with no outside employment.

To learn more about giving a year of service, please visit our AmeriCorps page.
