AmeriCorps VISTA at Vermont Campus Compact

The Vermont Campus Compact (VCC) AmeriCorps VISTA program is dedicated to college access and attainment for low income, underrepresented, and first generation college students at our member campuses. VISTA members live and work in the communities they're serving in and generally do not engage in direct service, such as tutoring or mentoring.

About

The VCC VISTA Program is part of the broader Northern New England Campus Compact VISTA Collaboration. The Northern New England AmeriCorps VISTA Collaboration is comprised of the Campus Compact state affiliates in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.  The collaboration is based on mutual interest in supporting service and service-learning focused on anti-poverty measures across the more than seventy colleges and universities in our collective memberships. 

The goal of our VISTA project is focused on the development of programming on campuses across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont that will increase access and retention to higher education for low income individuals by providing programming focused on improving college aspirations, promoting the belief that college is an option and increasing access to higher education for low income individuals seeking higher education.
