  • Alumni story
    Susan Becker 1969 1970 Houston, Texas

    Fifteen months of working as a Vista Volunteer in Houston, Texas gave me a much richer and thoughtful life than any contributions I might have made. When organizing for Welfare Rights, I found a woman with kids (one sick), living in the dark, alone, no food, utilities turned off, afraid, no where to go, no one to ask for help.  In walking with her though the “system” for immediate aid, I discovered the heaps of frustration and humiliation the powerless experience. It gave a real three-dimensional mass to a fear of being hungry, afraid and abandoned, without hope. In addition, I found my direction in the 6th Ward, helping to create a community kindergarten with help of women from the First Congregational Church.  An old house in the neighborhood was remodeled, and a curriculum organized by parents and neighbors.  Vaccinations, dental and health care were priorities. It was an unforgettable life experience that broadened my values and future political orientation.

    Leif Olandese 2016 West Palm Beach/ Fort Myers FL

    While I currently serve as The VISTA Leader in Florida's only Promise Zone, my story is focused back in my 1st year as a VISTA in West Palm Beach. I worked with the Children's Home Society designing and implementing a vocational program to assist single parents in the job search for compatible employment given the complexity of their daily demands. But my greater contribution came, I feel, from my FEMA Training. I ordered disaster preparation materials for all three offices in English, Spanish and Creole. With permission from my site supervisor, I also did presentations on building disaster safety kits at each office. I say this was my greater contribution because 2 months later the area would evacuate for Hurricane Irma. I like to feel I helped prepare some residents of the West Palm Beach area for that tragedy.
