One of the most important roles of a supervisor is to introduce the VISTA members to their new community and help them begin building their identity with the project. Some VISTA members relocate to serve in VISTA. Settling comfortably into a new community may be one of the most difficult challenges that VISTAs face. This challenge can be addressed by having OSOT that is early and thorough. This is key to a successful year for any VISTA member and project.
