AmeriCorps*VISTA is the national service program designed specifically to fight poverty. Founded as Volunteers in Service to America in 1965 and incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs in 1993, VISTA has been on the front lines in the fight against poverty in America for more than 40 years.
VISTA members commit to serve full-time for a year at a nonprofit organization or local government agency, working to fight illiteracy, improve health services, create businesses, strengthen community groups, and much more. With passion, commitment, and hard work, VISTA members create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.
By serving through VISTA, members gain new skills, friends, and experiences—plus they’ll receive the satisfaction that comes from helping others. During a term of service, members also receive a modest living allowance, health care, and other benefits. And, upon completing service, members can choose to receive either an education award worth $4,725 to pay for college, or $1,200 in cash.
AmeriCorps VISTA members will be assigned to the Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada (VCSN) to support the United Way of Southern Nevada’s (UWSN) Financial Stability Partnership. AmeriCorps VISTA members will serve within UWSN to build organizational capacity and increase the number of EITC (Earned Income Tax Credits) and CTC (Child Tax Credits) qualified tax returns of low-to-moderate income individuals, families, the limited English proficient and the disabled in southern Nevada.
