E3.21 Duluth Community Development Coordinator VISTA
The Duluth Community School Collaborative (DCSC) is seeking a passionate and driven individual to join our team as an AmeriCorps VISTA Member! DCSC is a non-profit organization that partners with Duluth Public Schools to implement a Full-Service Community Schools (FSCS) model through four pillars of community schools: (1) expanded and enriched learning time and opportunities, (2) collaborative leadership and practices, (3) active family and community engagement, and (4) integrated student supports. The Collaborative was created to address inequities within the low-income Hillside neighborhood of Duluth. DCSC currently serves Myers-Wilkins Elementary, Lincoln Park Middle School, and Denfeld High School. Our mission is to foster community partnerships that promote wellness and school success for youth and families; creating a community of life-long learners that embrace diversity. Our vision is for youth and families to thrive in a diverse, safe and caring community that promotes inclusion for all. The Duluth Community Development Coordinator VISTA member will increase organizational capacity for the Duluth Community School Collaborative by helping to secure sustainable sources of funding, increasing community awareness and connection to the organization, and engaging new volunteer partners. VISTA member will be part of the Ecolibrium3 AmeriCorps VISTA cohort serving in northeastern Minnesota. Although each member is serving in a unique position, all cohort members will participate in VISTA specific activities such as regular cohort meetings, collaborative projects, professional development opportunities, and trainings. Additionally, cohort members will jointly complete one community service project of their cooperative design.
