Mission Statement

The mission of the Corporation for National and Community Service is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.

Description

VISTA is a national service program dedicated to eliminating poverty by helping individuals and low-income neighborhoods make positive changes for themselves. Through VISTA, ordinary people provide extraordinary service in organizations and agencies to create and expand programs and to build permanent infrastructure that ultimately bring low-income individuals out of poverty.

The Nebraska VISTA program seeks the highest-caliber candidates for national service. Nebraska offers competitive and high-quality professional level opportunities in national and local non-profits, faith based and other community agencies across the state. VISTA service is not a job, but rather professional volunteer service that can help prepare you for a future in the public, non profit or governmental sectors. VISTA will enable you to practice citizenship at its highest level, by serving other Americans.

The Nebraska VISTA experience involves incredible professional experience, tremendous responsibility and great challenges. VISTA affords members a unique experience that will endure for a lifetime. Members develop new skills and enhance abilities they have already developed. VISTA members commit to a year of service and are assigned full time to organizations and agencies working to fight poverty at its root cause. By living and working in the community they serve, VISTA members leave behind lasting solutions to some of our country's toughest problems.
