HAH Summer VISTA Associates
The Harvest Against Hunger AmeriCorps Summer VISTA Associate program offers individuals the opportunity to become engaged in existing projects for 8 to 10 weeks during the summer. HAH’s Summer VISTA Associate program plans to partner with 12 host sites around Washington state – either past or present year-round HAH host sites.
The goal of all of these projects is to sustain and support local gardening or gleaning efforts over the summer months while working towards eradicating poverty. In addition, HAH is working to strengthen summer feeding programs (for youth or seniors) by increasing access to fresh produce to help supplement these local programs. Summer VISTA Associates are available by application to past and present HAH host sites and require a cost-share to participate. Additionally, Summer VISTA positions are unlike full-time positions in that they are permitted to engage in direct service activities.
