The Texas Association of Charitable Clinics VISTA Program seeks to place members who are committed to national service and public health in the clinics throughout Texas that are dedicated to providing quality healthcare services to low-income individuals. VISTA Program members will be provided with on-going support and training, as well as invaluable experience in the healthcare field.


At Bethesda Health Clinic the first year VISTA will set the Volunteer Program on a path to success by creating seamless processes for onboarding new volunteers, updating the current Volunteer Management System, and increasing community awareness and involvement through recruiting volunteers, attending events/fairs and meeting with local businesses to encourage volunteerism. Member activities include updating and streamlining the existing volunteer management systems, volunteer handbook, policies and directory, attending community events and fairs to recruit volunteers and promote the clinic, coordinating with the Bethesda Alliance volunteers to plan the project’s future, and planning and recruiting for fundraisers such as the annual Birthday Bash.
