AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program designed to alleviate poverty. President John F. Kennedy originated the idea for VISTA, which was founded as Volunteers in Service to America in 1965, and incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs in 1993.

KDC is always looking for people to become involved and has numerous volunteer opportunities.  If you are interested in getting involved, please email us at info@kaleidoscope.org or give us a call at 573-308-9082.
