Member Duties : Over the course of the year the VISTA will reach out to Senior Centers across Alaska, learn the complex work of program development and AmeriCorps grants, recruit volunteers to join the Elder Mentor Programs and finish the year on a Training Tour for new AmeriCorps Senior volunteers as they go forth for their first year of service.
