Since the kick-off of our US2020 initiative in August of 2014, TPF4Y has hosted 5 VISTA members who have dedicated their time to the growth and sustainability of this program. Our VISTAs continue to be an invaluable asset to the work we do in support of US2020 and so many of the initiative's successes, as well as the improvements and changes we continue to implement, are a direct result of the work accomplished by our VISTA members. As our second group of VISTAs finish up their one-year service terms, we are in the process of interviewing their potential successors.
AmeriCorps VISTA members live and serve in some of our nation's poorest urban and rural areas. With passion, commitment, and hard work, they create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty. Want to learn more about becoming a VISTA?
