Summer VISTA Program

South Cumberland Summer VISTA Program

The Summer Associate VISTA Program provides an eight week opportunity for graduated high school seniors, current college students, as well as college graduates with the opportunity to serve their communities throughout the summer.



The South Cumberland Plateau VISTA Project hosted its second cohort of 20 Summer Associate VISTA members for eight weeks in 2017. The Summer Associate VISTAs worked with program partner sites; Discover Together, Mountain TOP, the University of the South Farm, South Cumberland Summer Meal Program and reading programs with Grundy County Elementary Schools. Unlike the full year VISTA program, the Summer Associate VISTA Program focuses on short-term direct service projects.

Recruitment for the Summer Associate VISTA Program has closed. 

The Summer Associate Program will begin May 31st and end August 3rd. We are excited to welcome 18 Summer Associate VISTA members to our program to serve with over 15 community partners this summer.
