AmeriCorps VISTA Project

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​WV's Promise Youth Alliance, Inc. ​is currently accepting applications from non-profit organizations, schools and state agencies to gain a VISTA resource to focus on developing, enhancing and sustaining educational programs focusing on fulfilling the Five Promises for children & youth. VISTAs members serve to strengthen and supplement efforts to eliminate and alleviate poverty, and to increase funding resources to support programs. VISTA resources are used to pro​vide a sustainable solution to poverty, not just making poverty more tolerable.  All Promise VISTA Site Projects must be developed in accordance with AmeriCorps VISTA’s core principles: an anti-poverty focus; community empowerment; sustainable solutions; and capacity building.
