The On-site Orientation and Training (OSOT) should not be the only training a VISTA member receives. A long-term training and development plan can address your organization or program’s changing needs and also meet VISTA members’ expectations for professional development. Use the tools here to plan and design ongoing formal and informal training opportunities for your members.
