OUSD partners with AmeriCorps VISTA to provide VISTAs to different department under OUSD. Each VISTA member makes a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency. In return for their service, AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a modest living allowance and limited health benefit options during their service, and have the option of receiving a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award or post-service stipend after completing their service. About 6,500 VISTAs are placed each year in more than 1,200 projects in low-income communities around the country.

This page is made to seek more VISTAs to help in the Oakland Community with the Oakland Unified School District.  Please check the link below to understand more about AmeriCorps VISTAs and how you can get involved: http://www.nationalservice.gov/programs/americorps/americorps-vista/what-vista-members-do
