Sample Timesheet Template


Adapt this sample timesheet to track the hours your members are serving.

Disclaimer: VISTA is not a 9-5 job, not a 40 hour a week position, but that time keeping is a valuable management practice (tool) to ensure there’s equity or parity between the VISTA’s efforts and the staff, as well as tracking time off.
