Our capacity building VISTAs are strategically placed with selected host sites that provide critical services, training and empowerment programs aimed at lifting residents up and out of the chains of poverty. The VISTA Leaders will serve as role models, trainers and resource providers who strengthen the leadership capacity of their VISTAs, VISTA projects and community members. The leaders will work to expand and build the capacity of individual VISTA members and their respective host sites.
