TSC VISTA 2021: The Tool Library
The Service Collaborative (TSC) VISTA Program mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and creating healthy futures for the residents of low-income communities. Our goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Service Collaborative VISTA program has partner organizations in New York State and across the country. During their term of service members, will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY. Our support includes monthly trainings, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA Leaders.

Member Duties : The Tool Library is an all-volunteer nonprofit tool-lending library whose mission is to put tools to work on large-scale community projects such as neighborhood clean-ups, tree-plantings, community gardens, and public art installations. Active members, including people, organizations, and businesses, can borrow from an inventory of over 3,500 tools. To alleviate poverty, The Tool Library has hosted dozens of skill-building workshops relating to home improvement, general maintenance, life skills, traditional repair skills, and more. The New Economies Coordinator VISTA will help The Tool Library scale its community work and become a leader in providing issue-based programming by piloting and evaluating a lead-based paint remediation action plan based on a sharing economy model of tool and equipment access. The VISTA will also work with the board of directors and volunteers to help implement year one activities and tactics identified in The Tool Library’s newly adopted strategic plan.
