Who can apply to host a VISTA?
NC Campus Compact member campuses may apply with a community partner OR community-based organizations may apply with a member campus partner. VISTAs should spend time on-site regularly with both partners.

If our site currently hosts a VISTA, do we need to re-apply?
If your site currently hosts a Campus Compact VISTA, you must complete the continuation application below, including a new VAD. 

What kinds of projects will NC Campus Compact support?
Applicants must propose a project that builds a campus/community partnership to address ONE of the following focus areas:

  • Economic Opportunity – projects that provide housing or financial literacy services to low-income people.
  • Education - projects that advance K-12 success for at-risk students through mentoring, academic support, or whole-school partnerships.
  • Healthy Futures - projects that improve access to nutritious food for low-income individuals and communities.

VISTAs may also organize events for national days of service, including MLK Day of Service.
