Linking resources to communities

What is AmeriCorps VISTA?

AmeriCorps VISTA is a paid one-year service program that aims to build the capacity of public and non-profit organizations.  Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) administers an AmeriCorps VISTA team dedicated to downtown revitalization.  AmeriCorps VISTAs live in communities to make connections between local businesses and local governments, develop innovative processes, conduct research, and develop promotional materials for their sites.


DCI recruits AmeriCorps VISTAs in the spring and host sites in the fall.

2017-18 host sites include

  • Local First of La Plata County
  • Town Buena Vista
  • Town of Limon
  • City of Longmont Downtown Development Authority
  • City of Trinidad
  • Huerfano County
  • Denver for Downtown Colorado, Inc.

AmeriCorps VISTA members with DCI typically have a background or interest in:

 • Urban Planning                      • Sociology

 • Public Administration             • Economics

 • Political Science                        • Business  

But anyone with a Bachelor's degree may apply!
