“For me, the AmeriCorps program was the starting point for my career. I was able to network with professionals from multiple disciplines, discover opportunities in the nonprofit field, and explore areas that held my interest. I was able to gain experience and develop skills that added to my resume and made me a more marketable employee. AmeriCorps also aided me in paying back student loans from my undergraduate degree and pay for tuition towards my graduate degree. Without the AmeriCorps program I would certainly not be where I am at today.”                                  Meagan McNeil, Director of Housing at AIM.

Since 1965, AmeriCorps VISTA members (Volunteers in Service to America) have brought their passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations like AIM that help alleviate poverty. Today, over 8,000 AmeriCorps VISTA members are serving as catalysts for change, living and working alongside Anderson community members to advance local solutions.

Benefits of Serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA Include:

  • Living Allowance – Receive a modest bi-weekly living allowance to cover basic expenses.
  • Non-Competitive Eligibility (NCE) – NCE is a unique hiring path which makes it easier for federal agencies to hire you upon successful completion of your service.
  • Relocation Allowance – If you move 50+ miles from your home to a new community, you receive relocation travel assistance and a settling-in allowance.
  • Professional Development Training – Attend in-person and virtual professional development opportunities throughout the year.
  • End of Service Award – Choose between a Segal Education Award ($5,920) to pay for a range of education expenses or a cash stipend ($1,800).
  • Child Care – You may be eligible to receive a child care benefit if you have children under the age of 13.
  • Healthcare Benefit – Choose between reimbursement for healthcare or a healthcare plan that also includes dental and vision coverage.
