With passion, commitment, and hard work, our VISTA members create and expand programs designed to fight poverty and close the education opportunity gap in Saint Paul.
The most fulfilling part of service has been learning the day-to-day work involved in an organization working to better socioeconomic inequities in the United States. There is a lot of work that goes into making organization and programs run, and it has been extremely fulfilling being able to see it all in action. I’ve also enjoyed seeing our summer program in action. We all worked so hard preparing, recruiting, and evaluating. It has been great to see it all come together in the end.
