AmeriCorps VISTA Program
The VISTA program at FIRST strives to match an AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteer to our field structure in support of teams within underserved communities. The FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA mission is to create and expand the vision of FIRST by working in areas that have been deemed underserved: lower, socio-economic communities, rural areas, and areas that have little to no support or resources to be able to easily access STEM initiatives. VISTAs work closely with all teams in their area as general support, with a strong focus in underserved populations.
“Fighting Poverty with Robots: The FIRST® VISTA Experience” is a short video created by the 2012-2013 FIRST AmeriCorps VISTAs to raise awareness of the FIRST VISTA program and mission.
FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA positions are located throughout the United States. To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to the VISTA team at: VISTA@usfirst.org.
