Strong City Baltimore’s AmeriCorps VISTA Program

Every year, Strong City Baltimore develops and supports nonprofit and community leaders who are passionate about service and community development.

Strong City is proud to sponsor an 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.

The Strong City VISTA Cohort implements sustainable solutions and expands the impact of projects across Maryland.  Members serve with an anti-poverty focus for 365 days as full-time volunteers at a nonprofit organization, religious organization, or government agency. Strong City VISTA Members receive a solid foundation of skills they can use as a springboard for careers in government, nonprofits, education, and beyond.
