AmeriCorps VISTA

AmeriCorps VISTA is the national service program that works to eliminate poverty. The first VISTAs began serving in 1965 in the migrant farm worker camps in California, the hollows of eastern Kentucky, and the inner city of Hartford, CT. Since then, more than 180,000 VISTAs have served throughout America to expand the capacity of homegrown efforts to address community challenges.

VISTAs develop initiatives that enable people to become self-sufficient and secure. Our impact is reflected in the hundreds of programs that VISTAs helped launch over the decades, including Head Start, Upward Bound, the credit union system, Habitat for Humanity, and Neighborhood Watch.

AmeriCorps VISTA is a program of CNCS, the federal agency that improves lives, strengthens communities, and fosters civic engagement through service and volunteering.

ENRICH Afterschool 

ENRICH, Evaluating the Needs, Resources and Initiatives in the Communities of Houston in support of after-school, brings the local afterschool, or out-of-school time, community—including school districts, government organizations and nonprofit agencies—together with key stakeholders to discuss the needs of youth in relation to afterschool programs. The Project will examine how out-of-school time programs impact participants, families and communities. Project goals are to:

  • Identify themes of unity in relation to out-of-school time needs, outcomes, and impact
  • Design a research project based on the collaborative work of the Harris County afterschool community
  • Create frameworks for strategic investments in Harris County afterschool programs
  • Promote the impact our afterschool programs are having on Houston’s youth
