VISTAOur AmeriCorps Volunteer In Service To America is awesome!
Positive Street Art is thrilled to announce that we have chosen our AmeriCorps VISTA and have been honored with a truly outstanding candidate! We welcomed Nicole A. Otis to the family in November!
For almost five years, Positive Street Art has taken Nashua by storm; transforming neighborhoods with art, businesses/parks with events, and music with dance. Help us reach our next level of development by supporting our participation with Americorps!
In partnership with NH Catholic Charities, Positive Street Art will host it’s own VISTA, a Volunteer in Service to America who will provide full time capacity building and organizational support for a three year project. During Nicole’s year-long term, we plan to expand our workshop program to better support emerging artists in the community as well as aspiring instructors and most importantly, our youth.
Meet Our VISTA Nicole Otis
