The resources in this section are curated specifically for intermediary supervisors responsible for training and supporting sub-site supervisors throughout the VISTA project lifecycle. Download and customize slide sets, templates, tools, and agendas for use in one-to-one or group training sessions to build strong working relationships with your sub-sites.

Your sub-site supervisors will also be key partners in reporting and evaluation of your project. Reporting is tied to CNCS performance measures. For more information on performance measures, please see the AmeriCorps VISTA Performance Measures Module and the Performance Measurement Core Curriculum
