Eco3.23 Duluth Aging Support Capacity Building VISTA
The Duluth Aging Support Capacity Building VISTA will build the capacity of Duluth Aging Support as we expand existing projects and develop new initiatives that support older adults and caregivers. Duluth Aging Support’s (DAS) mission is to enhance the lives of older adults and caregivers through key priority areas- education, outreach, resources, advocacy, and collaborative partnerships. This VISTA will identify stakeholders, establish new partners, and build on existing relationships to advance our community work. In order to engage stakeholders and community members, this position will develop outreach opportunities throughout the Arrowhead Region. The Capacity Building VISTA member will support the DAS leadership team by creating a needs assessment and the formation of a program development plan. This plan will include priorities on supports for racially and culturally diverse, low-income, older adults and caregivers. In addition, the plan will incorporate strategies for supporting persons with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). The 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.
