What is a VMP VISTA Host Site?

With a focus on the organizational systems that directly impact the quality of youth mentoring relationships, the VMP VISTA Mentoring Program infuses human capital resources into select start-up or existing host mentoring programs to support and/or develop organizational capacity, resiliency and to drive improved outcomes.

Successful applicants have received a VISTA member to serve in their mentoring or youth services program 40 hours a week for a full year.

Each site is granted an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America) to assist in either building or maintaining a new program or project. After the completion of each year, performance is evaluated.

VMP Host Sites are required to to be a part of our Mentoring Network by registering with Mentoring Connector, a database to recruit new mentors and increase visibility. You can register your site here.
