Montana Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTAs commit to a year of service at a college, nonprofit, or government agency where they work to alleviate poverty, promote college success, and achieve educational equity in our state. AmeriCorps VISTAs increase the capacity of community organizations to serve more individuals more efficiently. As a VISTA you will make a difference through grant writing, fundraising, volunteer recruitment, community outreach, and other professional activities, helping to make a difference at one of nearly 20 service locations across Montana.
AmeriCorps service gives young people an opportunity to enter new communities after college. During a year of service, you will have the opportunity to build connections with other dedicated national service members while improving the lives of those who are most often underserved and overlooked.
AmeriCorps members receive a modest living stipend, professional development, and an education award that may be used to repay federal student loans or to cover future tuition expenses. They are also eligible to receive health insurance and child care support, in addition to other benefits. Learn more and apply click on the green “Apply Externally” button.
