Winston-Salem Community Action Coalition

The Winston-Salem Community Action Coalition consists of 18 AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service To America (VISTA) members sponsored by the Office of Civic & Community Engagement at Wake Forest University.

AmeriCorps*VISTA members are placed in full-time, capacity-building roles with community organizations throughout Winston-Salem. Focused on poverty alleviation, VISTA members work in the areas of educational equity, economic empowerment, and health and food justice. VISTAs 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.
