AmeriCorps VISTA terms of service
VISTA members serve a one year term that begins immediately following their VISTA pre-service orientation.
Our program year typically begins in August.
Members may serve up to five VISTA terms, but are only eligible for two Education Awards.
A typical week of service is about 40 hours. Some weeks may require more hours.
VISTA service is considered a “24/7” commitment. As such, members may not hold another job while serving. They, can, however take educational courses with approval.
