Children and Youth AmeriCorps*VISTA Project of Northwestern Pennsylvania
The goal of the program is two-fold. First, VISTAs serving with non-profit agencies will create and execute new program initiatives helping children and youth from low-income families. Second, the VISTAs will recruit college volunteers from the area colleges/universities (seven total)to act as role models and help sustain the project. The result is an improvement in the lives and potential of low income children, youth, and their families.
