What is AmeriCorps VISTA?
AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program that started in 1964 designed specifically to fight poverty. VISTA Members commit to serve full-time as a paid professional volunteer for at least one year at a nonprofit organization or local government agency, working to fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.
Families in Transition – New Horizons is proud to coordinate one of New Hampshire’s largest, statewide AmeriCorps VISTA Programs. Families in Transition -New Horizons partners with nonprofit and government agencies in New Hampshire to place 20-30 VISTAs annually who work for at least one year to build programs that fight poverty and improve the quality of life for the most disadvantaged members of our community.
