VISTA leading meetingCongratulations! You have finished this course.

Capacity building is the foundation of VISTA service. As a VISTA supervisor, it's important to recognize the difference between capacity building and direct service.

Before you ask a VISTA member to do direct service, consider: how will this service help him build the capacity of your community and organization?

Your goal as a VISTA supervisor is to help VISTAs leave a lasting impact on the organizations and communities served.
