VISTA Review: The Impact Edition
Spring is in the air, and with it comes the latest version of the VISTA Review newsletter. We know the tremendous impact that just a one AmeriCorps VISTA member can have at a single organization, and we have 8,500 dedicated individuals serving around the country! As a result of our efforts last year, over 800,000 community members were inspired to volunteer, serving more than 8 million hours. AmeriCorps VISTA members collectively generated $206 million in cash and in-kind resources; that’s more than double every dollar invested in our program. I think we can all agree that VISTA members are a true force multiplier in areas of our nation’s greatest need.
In this edition we also debuted our new promotional video and tagline: “Go Where You’re Needed”. Every day our members go to serve where the need is greatest. With our new video contest, we want to know: how did you go where you were needed? Submit your video by 11:59 p.m. ET on May 20th, and the winning submission will be promoted on our website and social media channels.
We hope you enjoy reading the Spring 2018 edition VISTA Review as much as we have enjoyed making it. We are always looking for great stories, so please send your ideas and photos to VISTAOutreach@cns.gov.
