AmeriCorps VISTA Program

The George Washington University and DC Public Schools Partnership

2017-18 VISTA Cohort


The GW Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service and DC Public Schools collaborate on an AmeriCorps VISTA program. Our VISTA members are college graduates who have come to DC from across the United States to do a year of national service. Our VISTAs serve in six DCPS schools as well as in three divisions of DC Public School's Central Office: Office of Out of School Time, Office of Family and Public Engagement, and Empowering Males of Color. VISTAs serve with school personnel and community organizations as well as with GW faculty and students to cultivate community partnerships, create systems that track and develop school partners and create sustainable systems for partner and family engagement.
