Vista VolunteersAmeriCorps is a national service program that engages more than 75,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet community needs in education, the environment, public safety, disaster response, and other areas. In exchange for a year of service, AmeriCorps members earn an education award that can be used to pay for college or to pay back qualified student loans. Seventy percent of the programs in our state portfolio work regionally or statewide. Due to the Commissioners’ commitment to making an AmeriCorps resource available to every Oregon community, we now have AmeriCorps members serving in 30 Oregon counties.

VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) was founded in 1965 as a national service program to fight poverty in America. In 1993, VISTA was incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs.

Today, more than 46 million Americans live in poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA taps the skills, talents and passion of more than 8,000 Americans annually to support community efforts to overcome poverty.

By serving with AmeriCorps VISTA, you can make a tangible difference. And, you’ll find the fulfillment that comes from using your knowledge and skills to help those in disadvantaged circumstances turn their dreams into reality.
