AmeriCorps VISTA Program



As Volunteers In Service To America, VISTA members work in communities throughout the United States to build sustainable programs that alleviate poverty.  In conjunction with NC Campus Compact, VISTA members partner with a university and community organization to build bridges and strengthen existing connections between campuses and communities.



High Point University is proud host to three VISTAs through the North Carolina Campus Compact Program. One VISTA is paired with West End Ministries where she works to allieviate food insecurity. The other two VISTAs are partnered with the Hayden-Harmon Foundation and focus their work on the Washington St. neighborhood. One of these VISTAs focuses on education, overseeing the Community Writing Center and Mt. Zion Baptist Church and working with another after school program called PNAC in the Ritz Theater. The other VISTA on Washington St. focuses on alleviating food insecurity by promoting community gardens and cooking classes. All of the VISTAs work directly with students in HPU’s Bonner Leaders Program, coordinating weekly training events and by aiding the students with work at their community organizations.


The High Point Admissions Office is Located in Wrenn Hall.

Tours are available 7 days a week. Please contact us to schedule your visit.
