Rhode Island Free Clinic

AmeriCorps VISTA Team

AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program, often called ”the domestic Peace Corps,” that deploys members for a year of community service to help build capacity in organizations fighting poverty. Here at the Clinic our AmeriCorps VISTA Members recruit and coordinate volunteers, research and analyze patient data and health outcomes, and help coordinate fundraising, grant writing, social media, PR, and outreach initiatives. They are on the front lines of public health and public service, helping to build the Clinic’s capacity to provide critical health services for our patients.
