Mercy Corps Northwest (MCNW) VISTAs manage projects that build the long-term capacity of their communities through microenterprise & financial asset development, job skills training, food security, homeless services, and affordable housing. VISTAs serve throughout the region in various non-profits to perform indirect service—working behind the scenes on projects such as volunteer recruitment, program development, partnership building & outreach, and grant writing. While the programs that VISTAs develop endure for years, VISTAs have limited interaction with clients and are generally based in a non-profit office setting. Participating in the AmeriCorps VISTA program through MCNW offers the opportunity to gain advanced project management skills and exercise creativity in program implementation—skills highly desired by employers.
