Who We Are

Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) is an anti-poverty program designed to provide needed resources to nonprofit organizations and public agencies to increase their capacity to lift communities out of poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA provides opportunities for Americans 18 years or older from a diverse range of backgrounds to dedicate a year of full-time service with YWCA Tri-County Area to create or expand programs designed to empower individuals and communities in overcoming poverty.

The power of AmeriCorps VISTA is extraordinary, and brings talented, passionate people on board to create or enhance your anti-poverty program by expanding the capacity of YW3CA.

VISTA Youth Empowerment Survey project is now shifting to address the immediate needs uncovered by the Covid-19 pandemic and social unrest in 2020 that affected Pottstown’s youth and their families. The pandemic, social unrest, and pause in youth services revealed that schools, parents, and community organizations were not prepared to meet the needs of the community. This pandemic created trauma for everyone; racial issues and unrest magnified that trauma.

VISTA members support mission-based initiatives designed to increase connections in the community surrounding racial and social equity. VISTA members contribute to help YWCA Tri-County Area staff members as they deliver services for youth and their families designed to help them deal with trauma, engage the public in issue education surrounding racial and social equity initiatives, and monitor public activity concerning racial and social equity.
