AmeriCorps VISTA

The City of Charleston is pleased to serve as the local sponsor for the AmeriCorps VISTA Project in Charleston, SC.  

AmeriCorps VISTA is the national service program designed specifically to fight poverty. Authorized in 1964, VISTA has been on the front lines in the fight against poverty in America for more than 45 years.

VISTA members commit to serve full-time for a year at a nonprofit organization, public agency, or local government agency with programs that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.VISTA members generally do not provide direct services; instead, they strengthen and support organizations by building infrastructure, expanding community partnerships, securing long-term resources, coordinating training for participants, and much more.

For more information on our project, please contact our office at 843-965-4190.
