The AmeriCorps Vista program is making its way to Millersville University again this year. Since its inception in 1994, MU has supported AmeriCorps and its initiatives. This year’s program will be aimed at aiding the University’s Integrated Studies program
and supporting students to attain pre-graduation and post graduation employment. The project began on July 23 and will run through July of 2021.
The AmeriCorps Vista program is a national service program that has been at the forefront of building the capacity for communities to fight poverty. The goal is to build solutions that last even after the project has concluded. Brought together through partnership between the Corporation for National and Community Services (CNCS) and the Pennsylvania Campus Compact (PACC), the program has aided various groups for over the last 50 years. The focus is to find sustainable solutions to help build long-term support in a community.
