"Being an AmeriCorps VISTA member seemed to be the perfect opportunity to become immersed in my local community and establish lasting cycles of transformation.

 

I am proud of being a catalyst in establishing relationships that will exist well beyond my AmeriCorps VISTA term of service and contribute to the long-term eradication of hunger among school-aged youth in Baltimore City."

"I've been a VISTA for almost a full year now and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever participated in. I have grown more professionally in this last year than I could have ever imagined.
