An experience in my life that has shaped my decision to spend a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA:

I served as a VISTA at a local public health agency in Oregon to gain experience within the public health field. I received a great overview of what public health looks like at a local level and had so many opportunities that I wouldn’t have had if not for AmeriCorps. I was so pleased with my year of service that I’ve decided to do it again!
