AmeriCorps VISTA Program
AmeriCorps VISTA is a form of national service that aims to build capacity in nonprofit organizations and public agencies across the United States. During their year of service, VISTA members gain valuable professional, educational, and life benefits, and the experience has a lasting impact on the members and the communities they serve. Immunize Colorado's AmeriCorps VISTA Program, the Colorado Immunity Corps (CO-mmunity Corps) aims to advance and promote vaccine delivery and education in communities across Colorado through eight full-time VISTA members. These members build the capacity of their host site by developing and implementing local immunization activities that promote education and access to vaccines and primary care services in their communities.
