Goodwill AmeriCorps Programs
Goodwill VISTA Partnership
The Goodwill VISTA Partnership is a statewide AmeriCorps VISTA program that builds capacity and sustainability of nonprofits to reduce poverty in Maine communities through indirect service. VISTA members build capacity in their placement sites through volunteer management, fundraising, marketing, program design, etc. to increase services to individuals living in poverty. Although member responsibilities vary from site to site, all VISTAs are required to attend a pre-service orientation, write monthly reports, attend all required trainings and follow out the activities as outlined in their site’s VAD. At any given time there are 30-40 VISTAs serving with the Goodwill VISTA partnership.
