Full-time VISTAs serve for one year and work with City departments to fight injustices and causes of poverty. Before you apply:
Our program will follow state, City, and AmeriCorps guidance in regard to COVID-19 safety precautions. We’ll work with candidates to ensure they can start service safely. For more information, see the AmeriCorps VISTA COVID-19 questions.
Serve Philadelphia VISTA positions are entry-level, meaning that there are opportunities for growth within the role. We encourage all to apply, even and especially if you feel “underqualified.”
Studies have shown that marginalized communities—including women, LGBTQ+ people, and people of color—are less likely to apply to positions unless they meet every listed qualification. However, we deem all experience as relevant, and we encourage marginalized applicants from non-traditional career paths to consider applying.
