MNA Civic Engagement Team AmeriCorps VISTA Program

What is the MNA VISTA Program?

Michigan Nonprofit Association's (MNA) Civic Engagement team, comprised of The LEAGUE Michigan, Michigan Campus Compact, and Volunteer Centers of Michigan, expands efforts to reach across all areas of lifelong engagement in Michigan.

MNA Civic Engagement AmeriCorps VISTA members are placed with K-12 schools, college campuses, or volunteer centers and serve approximately half of their service hours building capacity within a strategic community partner. MNA VISTAs promote and strengthen community-building initiatives focused on education and economic opportunity.
