About AmeriCorps VISTA
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) is a program where members create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.
Each VISTA member makes a year-long, full-time commitment to serve at a nonprofit organization or public agency. AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a modest living allowance and health benefits during their service, and have the option of receiving a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award or post-service stipend after completing their service.
VISTA members generally do not provide direct services, such as tutoring children or building homes. Instead, they focus their efforts on building the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities. VISTAs develop programs to meet a need, write grants, and recruit and train volunteers.
The Oaks Academy is a network of Pre-K to 8th grade independent schools serving racially and socioeconomically diverse students in urban Indianapolis.
