The MTCC AmeriCorps VISTA program places full-time AmeriCorps members with colleges, universities, schools, nonprofits, and government agencies throughout Montana. Our members help organizations build their capacity to deliver services within the education and veterans services sectors. They help to assess community needs, amplify local initiatives, recruit volunteers, fundraise, and support long-term solutions to poverty.
AmeriCrops VISTA members serve full-time for one year (the service term begins in July or August). They receive an Education Award of $6,345,* a modest living stipend, and other benefits.
*Year-long members may elect to receive an $1,800 end-of-service cash stipend in place of the education award.
AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates serve for approximately three months (early-June to mid-August). They receive an Education Award of $1,342 as well as a modest living stipend. These members help to meet organizational needs during the busy summer months!
As an added bonus, many Montana colleges and universities may match education award funds used to pay for tuition. For example, The University of Montana may match up to $1,000! Learn more.
