GW AmeriCorps VISTAS



The Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service and DC Public Schools (DCPS) collaborate on an AmeriCorps VISTA program that places VISTA Members in Title I schools throughout the city. Our VISTA members are college graduates who have come to DC from across the United States to do a year of national service. VISTA Members serve in ten DCPS schools as well as two divisions of DC Public School's Central Office: Office of Out of School Time and the Office of Family and Public Engagement. VISTAs serve with school personnel and community organizations as well as with GW faculty and students to cultivate community partnerships, create systems that track and develop school partners and create sustainable systems for partner and family engagement.
