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’s Department of Service Learning serves as the host site for 3 AmeriCorps VISTAs. Each VISTA serves as a coordinator for the Bonner Leader Program by coordinating weekly training events and by supporting the students’ service at their community organizations. They coordinate alternative break trips, days of service and personal and professional growth for students a part of the 4-year program. Additionally, each VISTA is partnered with a project site aiming to address the needs of various issues the community faces.


The High Point Admissions Office is Located in Wrenn Hall.

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