Who hires VISTAs?

Organizations that hire VISTAs are called “host sites.” Host sites are nonprofits or government agencies that provide critical services, training, and empowerment programs aimed at enabling local residents to break the cycle of poverty.

As a host site, you’ll benefit from receiving the support of a full-time staff member without the high cost of salary and benefits. Host sites who have hosted VISTAs in the Manchester area include nonprofits such as Families in Transition (Manchester), Arts in Reach (Portsmouth), Nashua Boys & Girls Club (Nashua), and CASA (Manchester). Government agencies include the City of Manchester’s Office of Youth Services and the Keene Public Library.
