My VISTA term just ended on the 15th. I served my term in the town I went to college, so I had to figure out what to do after my term, so I decided to move, and now I've moved to Boston, MA and I only know like 2 people, so I wanted to find out if there are any VISTA Alumni groups in the area?

I know of an Americorps Alums, not a strictly VISTA alums chapter. There is a potentially active group in New Hampshire that just started up this year.

There was a meeting/potluck attended by a few Alumni and a slew of actives just this week. I think it was the third thing this year. VISTA, City Year, NCCC, and SCA are all active up in Manchester NH area.

If there's not one, consider spearheading starting one or re-activating a dormant one. You may want to expand it to non-VISTAs if there aren't enough interested VISTAs in the area since there are a lot more non-VISTAs than VISTAs.

Hook up with current members as well. They may not have a lot of time now. Volunteer at local AC, VISTA or not, service projects in your area as you will often find Alums helping out.

Hi Amanda,
   I know you posted this over a year ago (!), but I am just seeing it now and wanted to reach out to see if you are still in Boston and whether you ever got connected with the AmeriCorps Alums Boston Chapter?  We're having an event next Thursday, December 6 - http://www.eventbrite.com/event/4806523441.  It should be a lot of fun!
