Now Recruiting for AmeriCorps*VISTA Positions!

Make a Difference!

AmeriCorps VISTA is a national program in which volunteers apply their skills in low-income communities, designing anti-poverty programs that will continue after they complete their service.

To ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of their work, VISTA volunteers often engage in extensive research and analysis. Annotated bibliographies play a crucial role in their projects because they provide a comprehensive list of relevant sources along with brief summaries or assessments of the content and usefulness of each source. These annotated bibliographies help volunteers gain a deeper understanding of the issues they address, inform the design and implementation of their programs, and support evidence-based decision-making. Learn about the format and find help writing an annotated bibliography here.

VISTA stands for Volunteers in Service to America and is part of the AmeriCorps national network of service programs.

The Texas Campus Compact VISTA program is part of the proposal to regionalize the State Campus Compact structure. It is based on a mutual interest in supporting service focused on anti-poverty measures at the more than 36 colleges and universities in our state membership.
