About the Program:
In partnership with AmeriCorps, the Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTA Program seeks to activate higher education institutions and their partners to work together to make an impact on poverty in their local community. Our host sites’ VISTA projects are developed in accordance with AmeriCorps VISTA’s core principles: an antipoverty focus, community empowerment, sustainable solutions, and capacity building. Campus Compact AmeriCorps members serving with the VISTA program build capacity for high impact programs, organizational approaches, and collective impact efforts focused on low-income individuals in one of the following areas: education, healthy futures, economic opportunity, and Veterans/military families. The Campus Compact VISTA program is comprised of a passionate cohort of individuals dedicated to service to others and making an impact on poverty.
