AmeriCorps VISTA at the Academy

The Academy is a proud partner of AmeriCorps VISTA, (Volunteer in Service to America), a federal program whose members dedicate one year of service to organizations and public agencies that create programs to combat poverty and empower individuals and communities.

The members of the inaugural VISTA class at the Academy—Kirthi Shanmugam, Oleksandr Orak, Cooper Sheldon, and Erin Barta—are helping to expand the reach of our Afterschool STEM Mentoring and Scientists in Residence programs.

Applications for the Academy’s 2017 AmeriCorps VISTA program are now being accepted. Apply Now.
