What does it mean to be an AmeriCorps member with the Campus Compact VISTA program?
Campus Compact AmeriCorps members serving with the VISTA Program focus their service year on programs aligned with AmeriCorps anti-poverty priorities in education, economic opportunity, healthy futures, and veterans and military families. The scope of these efforts range from the program level, to the organizational level to multi-sector partnerships working on collective impact. As a corps, Campus Compact AmeriCorps members benefit from shared training and professional development, and collaborate both regionally and by issue area throughout the service year through communities of practice. In addition to their host site supervisor, Campus Compact AmeriCorps members are supported by 3 program staff and 4 VISTA Leaders based at regional network offices in Worcester, MA (Northeast office) and Chicago, IL (Midwest office).
