The Maryland Out of School Time Network proudly serves as a statewide intermediary sponsor for AmeriCorps VISTA projects supporting more and better afterschool and summer programs for Maryland youth. Now in the 7th year of operation, our AmeriCorps VISTA program members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to advance local solutions. MOST VISTA members find creative and lasting solutions to build capacity for out of school time and youth development organizations working towards:
- Inspiring the future STEM workforce by engaging youth in high quality STEM learning opportunities
- Eliminating childhood hunger by increasing the number of meals served by OST programs and enriching those programs with quality nutrition/health education
- Supporting innovative projects that expand access, improve quality, facilitate collaboration, and create new initiatives for OST programs statewide.
For more information, please contact Andrew Neuman, VISTA Project Director : firstname.lastname@example.org
"Being an AmeriCorps VISTA member seemed to be the perfect opportunity to become immersed in my local community and establish lasting cycles of transformation.
I am proud of being a catalyst in establishing relationships that will exist well beyond my AmeriCorps VISTA term of service and contribute to the long-term eradication of hunger among school-aged youth in Baltimore City."
- Phillip Clarke, former MOST VISTA Member
"I've been a VISTA for almost a full year now and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever participated in. I have grown more professionally in this last year than I could have ever imagined. I feel as though I am truly making a difference in my community and love that I get to help drive the change in an area of such high need. Everyone should consider AmeriCorps at some point in their lives, I have never been happier!"
