Vermont Youth Tomorrow A*VISTA Program (2013-2014)
AmeriCorps VISTA (A*VISTA) members serve at nonprofit agencies, schools, and municipalities that tackle important social issues to alleviate poverty. By focusing on mobilizing resources and building organizational capacity, VYT A*VISTA members help low-income youth succeed academically, develop job skills, receive healthy meals, learn about sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship, and become actively involved in their communities.
VYT A*VISTA members serve a year long term (8/5/2013-8/8/2014) and receive a monthly living allowance: $1,069 for Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties (sites located in Burlington, Richmond, So. Burlington, Swanton, Williston, & Winooski); $946 for sites located in Vermont’s other counties. Members may place qualified student loans into forbearance during service and receive a $5,550 education award or $1,500 cash stipend after successful completion of the program. The program also offers a health plan as well as a child care subsidy, for those who are eligible.
