During your Onsite Orientation and Training (OSOT), your supervisor and colleagues will introduce you to your sponsoring organization, your community, and your project, and convey key information and relationships you will need to be successful. VISTAs are proactive and resourceful. Get the most out of your OSOT by actively engaging in your learning. Complete the following:

  • Set up a meeting as soon as possible with your supervisor to discuss what you need to know and learn.
  • Before this meeting, read the brief overview in Learn about Theory of Change, so that you can use it to think more deeply about your role in the organization and the community.
  • Share the "Make the Most of your OSOT" checklist with your supervisor and ask for their input.
