AmeriCorps VISTA members (a.k.a. ‘VISTAs’) are highly skilled self-starters that are motivated and dedicated to their anti-poverty mission to empower individuals and communities. Believe you have what it takes? JOIN US!

Saint Mary’s College of California (SMC) is teaming up with AmeriCorps VISTA to strengthen partnerships between higher education and nonprofit/public agencies in an effort to alleviate poverty and create positive social change.

We host a yearly multi-campus program in which 16 AmeriCorps VISTA Members serve at nonprofit/public agencies partnering with SMC, Sonoma State University (SSU), Stanford University, University of San Diego (USD), and University of San Francisco (USF).

VISTAs make a year-long (52 weeks), full-time (40 hours per week) commitment to serve on specific projects at nonprofit/public agencies. They endeavor to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of agencies that provide education & health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.
