VISTA projects are hosted at Campus Compact member institutions and their community partners across the country. AmeriCorps members serve to build capacity for anti-poverty and civic engagement work.

Each year, member campuses and their partners are invited to apply to host an AmeriCorps member by submitting ideas for projects that serve low-income college students, low-income K-12 students, or low-income community members either on campus or in the surrounding community.

How to become a host site

In partnership with AmeriCorps, Campus Compact opens its host site applications each winter. Applicants are asked to provide information about a potential project and a position description for the AmeriCorps member. If you are interested in hosting an AmeriCorps VISTA member through Campus Compact, please reach out to Lindsey Ravizza at lravizza@compact.org.
