About the Experience
Gabi Tallman 2018-2019
"Serving as a VISTA gave me the full-time internship that I didn't know I needed. It let me gain real world experience in my field of study and make community connections for future endeavors."
Sarah Ann Skelton 2018-2019
"As an AmeriCorps VISTA, I discovered where I fit in the non-profit world. I was given the opportunity to work with and train volunteers, to create marketing materials, to learn how to communicate with donors and so much more! My year as a VISTA prepared me for, what I hope will be, the rest of my life."
