Serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA is an amazing opportunity to work on an anti-poverty, community-based project. CCMA supports an annual cohort of approximately 30 VISTA members. Because CCMA works with institutions of higher ed, the CCMA VISTA cohort start date is in the summer. This means the majority of our positions are open for applications from March through June.
While in service with our Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic AmeriCorps VISTA program, you will receive ongoing professional leadership and community development training in addition to learning more about underserved populations in America. There are a series of workshops throughout the year where you will get to know your fellow CCMA VISTA members, and we are always here for your questions. Below is a collection of resources for common questions that service with AmeriCorps VISTA raises.
