Kickstart a nonprofit career with our AmeriCorps VISTA program, the Volunteer Corps.

As a member of the L.A. Works' Volunteer Corps, you'll be placed at one of our nonprofit partner organizations for one calendar year and tasked with enhancing the organization’s volunteer program.

AmeriCorps VISTA: AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a national service program dedicated to ending poverty by building the capacity of nonprofit organizations and public agencies. VISTA’s mission is to strengthen and supplement efforts in low-income communities to eliminate and alleviate poverty by engaging volunteers from all walks of life, all geographical areas, and all age groups in a year of fulltime service. VISTA aims to build capacity in nonprofit organizations and public agencies to help them more effectively generate the commitment of private sector resources, to encourage volunteer service at the local level, and empower individuals and communities to raise their standards of living.
