Every year, Strong City Baltimore develops and supports non-profit and community leaders who are passionate about service and community development.
Strong City is proud to sponsor the largest AmeriCorps VISTA intermediary program in Maryland. We believe that AmeriCorps VISTA projects are integral to positive community empowerment. We leverage our resources and expertise to support and build the capacity of Maryland’s changemakers by offering recruitment, project development, administrative, and supervisory support.
Members serve for 365 days as full-time volunteers at a nonprofit organization, religious organization, or government agency. They work to eradicate poverty by fighting illiteracy, improving health services, strengthening community groups, and much more. Strong City-sponsored AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a solid foundation of skills they can use as a springboard for careers in government, nonprofits, education, and beyond.
The Strong City VISTA Cohort implements sustainable solutions and expands the impact of education, economic opportunity, and healthy futures projects in Baltimore City as well as Montgomery, Prince George’s, Washington, and Howard counties. We continue to seek out partners across Maryland to offer National Service opportunities and placements.
