AmeriCorps VISTA Logo

AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) was conceived by President John F. Kennedy as a domestic counterpart to the Peace Corps and was started by President Lyndon Johnson as part of the War on Poverty.

Mission: The AmeriCorps VISTA mission is to strengthen organizations that alleviate poverty through volunteering and the mobilization of resources.

The City of Memphis AmeriCorps VISTA program is part of a national collaborative to alleviate poverty in America. AmeriCorps VISTA members recruit and manage community volunteers, raise funds, and help coordinate projects. They support programs that improve academic performance, expand job opportunities, develop financial assets, alleviate hunger, reduce homelessness, and improve health services. They also support programs that increase housing access, develop economic opportunities for low-income veterans and military families, and expand access to technology. 

The City of Memphis AmeriCorps VISTA program is located at 125 N. Main Street, Ste. 414.  If you have any questions regarding volunteer service or community partnership opportunities, contact
