E3.21 Eco3 VISTA Team Leader – Professional Development Lead
Ecolibrium3 VISTA Corps is a dynamic program on the shores of Lake Superior. The Ecolibrium3 VISTA Corps began in 2017 with ten members focused on expanding capacity of local organizations and government agencies to address intractable community issues. The program focuses on a holistic model of addressing poverty from various angles such as equity and inclusion, food access and systems, government policy, community development, education, and design and creative placemaking. In 2020, the Ecolibrium3 has 25 members working with many partners, including governments to build equity and health into community plans, nonprofits to advance neighborhood revitalization and economic success for residents, public health and tribes to combat opioids and hunger, and organizations to expand opportunities for youth. The Ecolibrium3 VISTA Corps uses its depth of community knowledge to identify which levers may produce the largest impact on reducing poverty. We seek a VISTA Leader that can help develop the support resources needed for VISTA members to succeed in their positions, develop the Ecolibrium3 program to better serve the community, and is interested in directing their own special project for capacity development. The VISTA Leaders should have excellent communications skills, be flexible, be able to empathize with members and community representatives to identify issues and possible solutions, and be a strong ambassador for AmeriCorps. The Ecolibrium3 VISTA Leader will co-lead a cohort with two other VISTA Leaders (positions rotate in August) and will ensure strong individual support to members and the development of a cohesive cohort, while also specializing in one area: professional development, cohort communications, or partnerships and sustainability. The VISTA Leader will build upon their previous AmeriCorps or Peace Corps experience to create a rewarding experience for themselves, their members, and our program sites.
