OneStar AmeriCorps VISTA Project places skilled individuals with a diverse range of backgrounds at nonprofits and agencies throughout the state of Texas. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve full-time for one year on transformative, capacity-building projects that mobilize local resources and act as a catalyst for meaningful change for your organization.
We accept applications from organizations to host AmeriCorps VISTA members year round on a rolling basis. Organizations contribute a host site fee of $8,700 per VISTA member.
