ShareCorps Volunteer in Service to America
Volunteers in Service to America (VISTAs) are national service members that perform indirect service at local organizations, such as recruiting volunteers, building program curriculums, fundraising and grant writing, connecting communities with resources, and creating sustainability within their agencies.
