During the summers of 1964 and 1965, student volunteers from campuses across the state--men and women, black and white--worked together on antipoverty projects sponsored by Fund-supported community action agencies. One hundred volunteers served in 1964, followed by another 250 in 1965. The Fund produced this film to document the experiences of the "first 100″ and to inform the public about their antipoverty efforts. The national VISTA program (Volunteers in Service to America) was modeled on the North Carolina Volunteers. The Fund trained the first group of VISTA workers in 1966.
