There's a small but growing group for former VISTA Volunteers who served during the days of the Office of Economic Opportunity and ACTION. If you were in VISTA before Americorps was established, and are active on Facebook, check out http://www.facebook.com/group.php?v=wall&ref=search&gid=38704754664

Hi Dave:
Thanks for your message!
We actually just launched the "official" VISTA Alumni Facebook page, http://www.Facebook.org/AmeriCorpsVISTAAlumni.

We're hoping to gather folks online because as you may already know, VISTA will be celebrating its 45th anniversary next year. We'll be posting updates on various activities both on this Forum on the VISTA Campus as well as on our Facebook page.

If you can help us spread the word to VISTA alumni, that would be great!

Thanks,
Liz Matthews

I appreciate everything AmeriCorps is doing to make things better for our country. It's a great organization and deserves all our support.

The folks who served as VISTA Volunteers during the OEO and ACTION! days are pretty much orphans within the current alumni system. I hope that folks from the old program will stop by the VISTA before AmeriCorps page, join the (so far) 26 folks who registered and see if we can do some reconnecting.

Peace,
