South Cumberland Plateau AmeriCorps VISTA Project
About Our AmeriCorps VISTA Partnership
VISTA stands for Volunteers In Service To America, and is a branch of AmeriCorps, a federal program that is often referred to as the "domestic Peace Corps." AmeriCorps VISTA programs fight poverty across America by placing VISTA members in service to nonprofit organizations to help build capacity and sustainability.
The South Cumberland Plateau AmeriCorps VISTA Project began in 2014 and is a unique collaboration between South Cumberland Community Fund and the University of the South. SCP VISTAs serve each year at as many as 20 nonprofit sites in Franklin, Grundy, and Marion counties.
