No matter where you are or how you feel about the VISTA journey, it’s important to keep in mind the larger goal of the service year.

As President Johnson said in 1964, “Your pay will be low; the conditions of your labor often will be difficult. But you will have the satisfaction of leading a great national effort, and you will have the ultimate reward which comes to those who serve their fellow man.”

The VISTA service year inevitably has its ups and downs. Being aware of its typical phases and what you need to balance yourself throughout the year will make the process less overwhelming and more fun and productive. Remember: In struggle, there is life.
