AmeriCorps VISTA and the ACE project
In early 2019, Edmonds CC MESA was awarded a grant through Washington Campus Compact
for an AmeriCorps VISTA member. VISTA is a federal program focused on anti-poverty
initiatives that places volunteers in communities around the United States. VISTA
members help local organizations build structure and capacity. The MESA VISTA member
will coordinate the Access, Community, Equity (ACE) Program, which focuses on building
connections with partners and increasing student access to competitive component activities,
such as internships, workshops, and conferences.
