About the AmeriCorps VISTA program

  • VISTA is a full-time, yearlong program for men and women age 18 and older from all backgrounds
  • ¬†VISTAs do not provide direct service, i.e., working with youth through sports, but work to mobilize resources to help strengthen capacity at their sponsoring agencies
  • At the completion of their year of service, VISTAs receive an Education Award ($5,550) or end-of-service stipend ($1,500)
  • Throughout their year of service, VISTAs receive on-the-job training, a modest living allowance, health care benefits, 10 personal days and 10 sick days (in addition to organizational holidays), relocation allowance, and student-loan forbearance
  • The VISTA living allowance is set at 105% of the local poverty level in your city and is distributed to VISTAs every other week via direct deposit
  • VISTAs cannot have other employment during their service year and may attend school part-time only if approved by Up2Us HQ and CNCS
