As an AmeriCorps VISTA member, you’ll gain new skills and experiences and you’ll also find the tremendous satisfaction that comes from helping others. In addition, members who complete their service earn an Education Award to help pay for college, graduate school, or to pay back qualified student loans.  AmeriCorps VISTA members may also receive a modest living allowance during their term of service.
