In 2017, Char-Em United Way is recognizing 52 years of Volunteers In Service To America. VISTA was founded in 1965 as a national service program to fight poverty in America. In 1993, VISTA was incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs. Let’s keep up the amazing work!
Today, more than 46 million Americans live in poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA taps the skills, talents, and passion of more than 7,000 Americans annually to support community efforts to overcome poverty.
By serving with AmeriCorps VISTA, you can make a tangible difference. And, you’ll find the fulfillment that comes from using your knowledge and skills to help those in disadvantaged circumstances turn their dreams into reality.
Individuals have helped recruit volunteers, develop new programming, and have helped bring in thousands of grant dollars for program support!
