We make it easier for organizations to access national service resources by providing greater flexibility and ongoing support. You can rely on our extensive experience and knowledge of AmeriCorps program management, which allows you to focus on the important work of alleviating poverty in the local community.
OneStar AmeriCorps VISTA Project is a cost-share partnership, in which all parties contribute to the success and outcomes of the anti-poverty work at your organization. Investment by the host site and the community is fundamental, as the AmeriCorps VISTA resources are intended to be short-term.
Organizations interested in hosting an AmeriCorps VISTA member through OneStar AmeriCorps VISTA Project must complete a host site application. Host sites may apply for 1 or 2 AmeriCorps VISTA positions for a maximum of three years and must renew the position annually. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve for a 12-month term, so the host site should expect to recruit for a position on an annual basis.
