Become a Campus Compact VISTA Host Site

Campus Compact for Southern New England (CCSNE) is pleased to release the “Request for Host Site Proposals” for the 2019-2020 Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTA program.

CCSNE is seeking proposals from member campuses and/or from school or non-profit partners to host an AmeriCorps VISTA member for a year of full-time volunteer service building capacity for projects that mobilize higher education to make a difference in the lives of individuals who live in poverty. VISTA members are leveraged to build capacity in one of five anti-poverty priority areas: Education, Economic Development, Healthy Futures, Veterans and Military Families and Environmental Stewardship. Applications are due March 1, 2019 and the 2019-2020 cohort begins July 22, 2019. Complete the online application here.
