On Monday, Dec. 18, VISTA Coordinators from the Eastern Kentucky Region gathered for a lunch and professional training at FNU’s Wendover Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center in Wendover, Ky. VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a federal anti-poverty program administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service. VISTA provides full-time volunteers (VISTAs) to support projects at nonprofit, grassroots organizations, and local government agencies that operate programs to help alleviate poverty in the United States.
The training is part of a grant agreement that sustains the AmeriCorps TASK VISTA program and its projects in the Eastern Kentucky region. FNU staff members joined the VISTA Coordinators after the professional training on a tour and group dinner. Ideas were shared, history was told and memories were made.
A special thank you to the Frontier staff that helped plan this event and to AmeriCorps for our continued partnership.
FNU welcomes all professional development organizations to host their meetings at the historic Wendover Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center. For information on reserving space for your next event at Wendover, contact Michael Claussen at Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org.
A couple of days ago we spent some time with our TASK VISTAs in Eastern Kentucky at Wendover Big House. We had a great time catching up and learning about how we can serve our communities together. One of those lessons came from the phenomenal Mary Breckinridge and the Couriers of Frontier Nursing University in their persistence, ingenuity and dedication to serving Eastern Kentucky. #ServeKY #Kyproud #GettingThingsDone #AmeriCorpsWorks Kentucky AmeriCorps
