An AmeriCorps VISTA member can do amazing things for your community and for your organization.  During their one-year terms, ANDVSA VISTA members work to build capacity for prevention efforts in their communities.  ANDVSA VISTAs might engage in:

  • Prevention Planning
  • Implement new prevention projects (e.g. with youth, men, health professionals, etc)
  • Support community prevention training on prevention.
  • Apply for small grants
  • Research prevention activities
  • Other prevention capacity building activities

All ANDVSA member programs are eligible to apply for a prevention AmeriCorps VISTA member.  The application process for the 2015-2016 program is closed; however, our application process will once again reopen in early 2016.  To prepare for next year’s application process, you may refer to the ANDVSA VISTA Host Site Application 2013-14 (updated to 2015-2016. I can provide with another copy of that pdf if necessary).
