The AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates program is focused on fighting poverty in the United States, through expanding the capacity of local nonprofits.

Community Connections aims to increase independence and quality of life in the people we serve, including children with behavioral health needs and adults with developmental disabilities. The Summer Associates will develop and plan summer activity programs that will provide a way for our clients to develop skills like healthy coping, socialization, and relationship-building. By participating in this therapeutic group environment, our clients will develop an increased sense of belonging in their communities, and lead healthier and more fulfilling lives. As an AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associate, you will also be able to experience all the hiking, fishing, biking and kayaking of one of AmeriCorps top tourist destinations.
