    Welcome

    Welcome to the North Mississippi VISTA Project! AmeriCorps VISTA members live and serve in some of our nation’s poorest urban and rural areas. With passion, commitment, and hard work, they commit to one year of national service working to create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty. The North MS VISTA Project, housed at the University of Mississippi, places VISTA members in 23 counties in North Mississippi to build sustainable systems for fighting poverty through education.
