FLCC AmeriCorps*VISTA Initiative
FL|CC AmeriCorps VISTA Initiative contributes to the missions of FL|CC and the Corporation for National and Community Service by placing VISTA members with colleges, universities and community-based organizations. The FL|CC AmeriCorps VISTA Initiative provides resources, networking opportunities, and training for VISTA members. FL|CC VISTA members work to combat poverty through leveraging higher education resources to build the capacity of local non-profit organizations and through recruiting and training college students to provide college access mentoring for youth. FL|CC VISTA members are successfully building bridges between the classrooms and communities by connecting educators, students, and community partners to improve education and address societal needs through campus-community partnerships, applied civic education, and engaged citizenship. Students are learning from being engaged in meaningful service opportunities that create positive change in communities.
