Siena College VISTA Fellows Program
The Siena College AmeriCorps VISTA Fellows Program is a full time- one year post-graduate service program where individuals commit to fighting poverty in behind-the-scenes capacity building work. We have 32 VISTAs currently serving in the program including 2 VISTA Leaders, who are 2nd year VISTAs who serve as a coach and mentor to each of our members. Each VISTA is matched with a servite site at a particular non-profit off campus where they connect the resources of our campus and the community to further strengthen their work. Our program partners with over 30 non-profits in the Capital Region and is connected with national networks through the Bonner Foundation and the Corporation for National and Community Service. Our program provides high-impact professional development training that focuses on the enhancement of our VISTAs personal and professional development. Trainings include grant writing, community organizing, board mobilization, volunteer recruitment and sustainability and more. Our program is very team focused and provides a variety of support to help make the best of the service year experience. We are committed to change in our community by developing deep,sustainable, quality community partners. Leave your legacy. Join the Movement. Become a Siena College AmeriCorps VISTA Fellow!
