AmeriCorps VISTA

AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to meet our nation’s most pressing challenges and advance local solutions. We love our VISTAs!

Spend one year serving full-time with AVANCE and make a difference in the lives of at-risk families living in Austin.

VISTAs are considered volunteers but receive a monthly living allowance, end-of-year stipend, training, health coverage, childcare, and relocation allowance through AmeriCorps.

*Applicants must be college graduates and at least 18 years of age.

A message from our outgoing AmeriCorps member, Erica Eiben:


Whether you’re interested in social work, bilingual education,

Family Studies Graduate student Jorge Cox works in the child development classroom during his internship at AVANCE.

marketing, graphic design or writing and research, an internship at AVANCE is both rewarding and provides critical real world work experience that will translate into a variety of fields.

In the past, interns have conducted statistical research and analysis, worked with children in our early learning center, assisted with donor relations, developed outreach material, and organized special events. We love our interns!


It is really exciting to be working alongside professionals who are helping families and children to become more successful at school and for the future. I see how at AVANCE we are applying all the theories that I learned in school.

Jorge Cox, Family and Child Studies M.A. student, Texas State University


Internships are unpaid but can count as college credit. If you have other interests or skills which you believe can be carried out through AVANCE’s work, we are always open to new ideas to enhance capacity and strengthen the agency.
