AmeriCorps VISTA Program
The Memorandum of Agreement governing the FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA Program is between FIRST and the Corporation for National and Community Services. The Agreement allows FIRST to recruit a total of ten VISTA members who can be located in any one of twelve states from Maine to Baltimore, Maryland. Potential VISTA members apply online through the AmeriCorps website and can choose from a variety of programs across the US. At FIRST, we review applicants who chose our program looking for experiences and skills that best enable them to meet the goals we’ve set for the program. The FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA mission is to create and expand the vision of FIRST by working in areas that have been deemed underserved: low-income individuals and communities. This definition of underserved also includes bringing more girls into the fold of FIRST teams, expanding into areas where there are no teams, and defining and locating rural areas, and the potential for FIRST to penetrate these communities.
