Getting to Know Louisville
So, you're thinking about joining our AmeriCorps VISTA team?
Well, with our team comes the incredible city of Louisville. Our city is rich in history, culture, and community. Founded in 1778, Louisville was named in honor of King Louis XVI of France; although, you should know Louisville is pronounced Looavul. You may have also heard about our love for horse racing and fried chicken. True, we do love both, but there is so much more as you'll find out below.
The people in this city, though, are why we are here and why we serve. Louisvillians are passionate and compassionate. Ask anyone about college basketball or what their plans are for the Mayor's Give A Day. You will find our community is proud, and we hope you will find pride here in our city too!
