9781535435925: VISTA Redux 1969: A Year in the Life of a Volunteer

This book has been created because of events that happened almost 50 years ago.  A nation at war, a youth culture in revolution, a young photographer trying to find his path in life—all collided at a point in time called V.I.S.T.A.  Volunteers in Service to America was created as part of the war against poverty by allowing volunteers to serve in a community where they could effect change for a neighborhood, as well as effect change in the way they looked at themselves. We came from all walks of life and different parts of the country: New York, Massachusetts, California, North Dakota, New Jersey; we were a melting pot of mostly college kids in our early twenties.  As volunteers, we established how we would fulfill our year of service, and then  followed a daily routine, working as teachers, mentors, assistants, daycare workers, etc.
