Legal Aid VISTA
Legal Aid requests five VISTA members to build organization capacity and to help strengthen the statewide access to justice infrastructure. Members will support resource development; plan for effective communications, outreach, and education; strengthen statewide volunteer recruitment; staff statewide taskforces; and help develop a statewide access to justice plan, assessing statewide legal needs and evaluating the effectiveness of legal interventions. The VISTA members' efforts will have measurable impacts on all four of the AmeriCorps funding priorities of economic opportunities, healthy futures, education, and veterans and military families, and members will serve alongside Legal Aid's AmeriCorps state and federal members who are providing direct services in these priority areas.
