AmeriCorps VISTA Members

Want to make a positive impact in the Alisal while gaining valuable work experience and professional development? The City of Salinas is recruiting five individuals for a year of VISTA service working on community-driven projects in the Alisal. These five VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members will form the Alisal Support Team and work together on multifaceted strategies to improve the Alisal neighborhood by focusing on Economic Opportunity, Education, and Healthy Futures and will also assist with the Alisal planning process.

VISTAs are full-time service members through the Federal Corporation for National and Community Service, not City employees. Thousands of people serve community organizations (including nonprofits and governments) across the U.S. as VISTAs by developing capacity around anti-poverty projects through the program. Additional benefits for eligible applicants include healthcare, childcare assistance, pausing student loans, and more.
