Join the North Mississippi VISTA Project!

Do you want to make a difference in Mississippi? The North MS VISTA Project is accepting applications for summer & yearlong VISTA terms!


The North Mississippi VISTA Project is currently recruiting individuals who are passionate about making a difference in Mississippi. Summer and yearlong terms are available. VISTA members commit to a full summer (June & July) and/or a year (August 2019-August 2020) of national service with community-based organizations working to create sustainable solutions to addressing poverty.

In addition to a modest living stipend, VISTA members receive an end-of-service education award (or cash stipend). Yearlong VISTA members are also eligible for a health benefit. This is a full-time commitment that provides excellent training and exposure to careers in the nonprofit sector.

For more information, visit vista.olemiss.edu. Applications are currently being accepted and deadline is rolling.
