VISTA members commit to serve full-time for a year, working to build organizational capacity. VISTA members generally do not provide direct services, such as tutoring children or building homes. Instead, they focus their efforts on building the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that help to alleviate poverty.
The QENO AmeriCorps VISTA project specifically focuses on building capacity in the areas of volunteer management, community outreach and succession planning. Previous VISTAs have created things such as: volunteer management plans, social media plans, community outreach plans, marketing materials and templates, volunteer orientation manuals, volunteer training curriculum and much more.

- A modest living stipend
- $5500 Education Award or $1500 End of Service Stipend
