AmeriCorps and VISTA Members

Healthy Communities is proud to be the home for AmeriCorps members that give a year (or one summer) of volunteer service. From all parts of Lyon County, AmeriCorps are busy providing food for those in need, working with children in school gardens, teaching about good nutrition, providing services as Community Health Workers, providing information and resources to prevent and address opioid and other drug use, and so much more! AmeriCorps members receive extensive training during their term with Healthy Communities, including CPR and mental health “first aid.” They also earn their National Nutrition Certification, developed through Utah University. In addition, during their term they become certified as Community Health Workers.
