AIHEC is the collective spirit and unifying voice of our nation's 37 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs). The AIHEC Tribal VISTA Project recruits AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers to serve at TCUs and other Tribal organizations across the country. Our VISTA assignments help these institutions build capacity in three areas: education, environmental stewardship, and health promotion. Members spearhead projects ranging from climate resilience workshops to native food classes and financial literacy programs.
Current VISTAs are working on a range of projects to promote environmental stewardship, support the health and resiliency of tribal communities, and strengthen financial literacy.
The American Indian Higher Education Consortium works with AmeriCorps Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA) to place qualified volunteers at Tribal organizations. VISTA is a one-year, full-time, paid service opportunity.
