Become an AmeriCorps VISTA

Are you about to graduate and are looking for employment? Do you always wish that you could find the perfect way to help out in your community? And most importantly, do you have some student loans that you could use some help paying off? If so, we have a great opportunity for you! VISTAs are rewarded a $5,750 education award to pay education costs and VISTAs can defer student loan payments during their year in service. This is a great way to get experience in your job field!

Volunteer Houston is recruiting AmeriCorps VISTAs (Volunteers In Service To America) for the inaugural year of our VISTA Intermediary Program (VIP).

Today, more than 46 million Americans live in poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA taps the skills, talents and passion of more than 7,000 Americans annually to support community efforts to overcome poverty. Members make a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency. They focus their efforts to build the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.

We are looking for VISTAs at the following locations:
