"My year as a VISTA has changed my life more than any other experience thus far. During my VISTA year, I learned so much about where my passions lie and what my skills are, all while serving a community I cared deeply about. My VISTA experience was incredibly valuable when I applied for grad schools and when I had job interviews."—Wesley Gaddie, U.S. Department of Agriculture-School Meal Programs Policy Analyst
"I wanted to get real experience at a nonprofit, and the VISTA program allows an immersive experience where you can really learn to help others at the community level."—Riya Rahman, Youth Engagement Coordinator, No Kid Hungry
