  DR> As I said, I think this is related to Americorps.  If you follow the link

and i recall VISTA stands for Volunteers In Service To America. it was
the domestic version of peace corps and older than americorps (which
clinton stole from a MA program :)

so if they provide room and board and the applicants are young (need all
that energy and the ability to live cheaply!) and motivated it would be
a good match. this is not anything like a company trolling for cheap
kiddies.
