VISTA marks its 50th anniversary

AmeriCorps VISTA turned 50 this year, and we were honored to be mentioned several times (including a shout-out from Senator Amy Klobuchar) at Minnesota's official celebration on October 30.

We supported 91 VISTA members in our Summer Reads and Literacy VISTA programs last year.

"I am thankful for all of the people who have dedicated a year or summer of their lives to serve as a VISTA, allowing the experience to make a long-term impact on their career goals and community," says the literacy council's National Service Director Ellen Bergstrom.
