WV Higher Education VISTA Consortium

The WVCC WV Higher Education VISTA Consortium is an AmeriCorps*VISTA program.  VISTAs serve full-time to increase campus capacity for volunteer and service learning opportunities, thereby improving the quality of life in communities where they are placed. 

For more specific details on the goals of our program, see our project plan here.
