The City of Memphis has partnered with the Corporation for National and Community service to host a cohort of 26 VISTA Members who serve at non-profits and public agencies around Memphis. AmeriCorps VISTA members are passionate and committed to their mission to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.
VISTA 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. The City Of Memphis VISTA project just entered its 4th year and during this time VISTA members have served 44,432 hours, recruited 2,786 volunteers, and managed 1,836 volunteers who together served 12,882 hours.
