SIT and AmeriCorps

"AmeriCorps' partnership with SIT Graduate Institute provides individuals with the opportunity to encounter and address poverty while also educating themselves about the most effective ways to eliminate it.  SIT offers a flexible path toward receiving a valuable degree, and ultimately a new level of understanding of the policies, programs, theories, and complexities of poverty in the United States and beyond."

—Matt Dunne, Former Director, AmeriCorps*VISTA
