Welcome to AmeriCorps VISTA!
(Please note: this is a view-only, guest version of the PSO Blend online classroom.)
You are joining a program with a rich, 50 year-legacy of members working within communities and organizations, addressing the nation’s most pressing issues around poverty and inequality. You are also joining a community of over 7,000 other passionate, talented individuals who make the choice each year to serve hundreds of nonprofit organizations and public agencies around the country.
The AmeriCorps VISTA program is unique among all volunteer opportunities because of the community-based approach to addressing systemic poverty, working from within, and helping to identify the assets and people who make change happen here at home.
PSO Blend will help launch your year of service, providing the information, resources and connections you need to get started. The orientation is a combination of self-directed, online work before your service starts, two web-based seminars during your first week of service, virtual meet-ups with your peers during Weeks 2 and 4, hands-on learning at your service site, and continued online learning, with support along the way.
