AmeriCorps VISTA End of Service Celebration

The Mercy Corps Northwest AmeriCorps VISTA program welcomes our friends and community partners to take part in the End of Service Celebration honoring the AmeriCorps VISTA cohort completing their service terms in August. This celebration is an opportunity to highlight the important work these AmeriCorps VISTAs have done to build organizational capacity and tackle poverty at nonprofits throughout the Pacific Northwest – from Seattle to Bend. Mercy Corps Northwest AmeriCorps VISTAs expand economic and affordable housing opportunities, increase food security, and build resilience in low income communities. Our team is part of a nationwide program sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages over 5,000 people in service with AmeriCorps VISTA every year.
