Eco3.21 Healthy Alliances Development Associate
The Healthy Alliances Matter for All mission is to create, develop, build health equity through policies, practices, and procedures and community lead programs that positively impact health and well-being for everyone. HAMFA manages and implements strategies and solutions within the social determinants of health to improve life expectancies for everyone with attention to communities of color. We believe a community will survive and prosper as a whole when we are all walking on even ground. The VISTA will perform tasks to support HAMFA grow into a sustainable organization, increase community understanding and engagement regarding overall health literacy, health safety and education. The VISTA member will also develop curriculum around COVID-19, urban agriculture (literacy, cultural connection, food sustainability) as a part of the regional network Health Equity Northland. Healthy Alliances Matter for All (HAMFA) works to develop community health, economic and wealth sustainability through community-based social impact strategies. We mobilize around a community health coordinator model that creates opportunities for people of color to build valuable skills and compensation for grassroots engagement reaching communities most impacted by disparities where they are; creating cross-cultural networks; and deliberately working at the intersections in values across generations and building relationships among elders, young adults and youth. 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.
