Become a VISTA

Serve as a VISTA at one of our sites and make a real impact for a local organization and for our community members! Whether you are new to Louisville or were born and raised here, VISTA is a great opportunity to become part of the city in a new way. Our VISTA members meet monthly and go on occasional outings together, forming a strong network. Many of the VISTAs also collaborate during their VISTA assignment. With resources and support from the VISTA Leader and Project Staff, we want to make sure your year of service is a meaningful experience.
