This aligns with Antioch’s mission of empowering students with the knowledge and skills to lead meaningful lives and advance social, economic, and environmental justice.
Service through VISTA, City Year, state or national offices, or any other AmeriCorps program is a profound experience that can shape your vision of yourself and your professional future. At Antioch University, we know you want to continue to contribute and apply your skills and experience at the next level.
