The Winston-Salem Community Action Coalition consists of 18 AmeriCorps VISTA members sponsored by the Office of Civic & Community Engagement at Wake Forest University.

Members support local organizations to make sustainable change in areas that affect poverty; including education, economic empowerment, and health outcomes. Through activities such as fundraising, grant writing, research, and volunteer recruitment, members gain professional experience and leadership skills. This opportunity prepares you for a life of service in the public, private, or nonprofit sector.

Members are united by their passion to make a difference. Together, they have vowed to complete a year of national service and create meaningful change in Winston-Salem and beyond.
