About

The Families in Transition VISTA Program is focused on improving the quality of life for the most disadvantaged members of New Hampshire communities. Our efforts are led by a remarkable team of dedicated AmeriCorps VISTA members from all over the country. Our capacity building VISTAs are strategically placed with selected host sites that provide critical services, training and empowerment programs aimed at lifting residents up and out of the chains of poverty.

As a VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America), you will work for a minimum of one year to build programs, create change, and fight poverty in New Hampshire communities. Many VISTAs are recent college graduates; however, VISTAs can vary in age and experience.

VISTA responsibilities may include volunteer coordination and tracking, grant writing, coalition building, program design and implementation, community outreach, employment and training, marketing, fundraising, and other activities help organizations create effective and sustainable solutions to end poverty.

As a VISTA, you may work in a variety of service areas including homelessness, community development, entrepreneurship, after school programming, and social support for at-risk populations such as youth, elders, or refugees.
