MCNW Southern Washington Small Business Outreach Coordinator
Mercy Corps Northwest (MCNW) - Southern Washington, located in Vancouver, Washington, supports low-income entrepreneurs by empowering them through financial resources such as microloans and grants, and educational resources in order to meet their needs and empower them to be financially resilient. While our office is in an urban area, the community we serve includes current or aspiring small business owners in urban, suburban, and rural locations of Southern Washington. The VISTA will continue to assist in expanding our reach to include some of the most underserved communities. AmeriCorps VISTA members perform only indirect service; interaction with clients will be limited and the member will spend the majority of his or her time in an office setting. However, the MCNW VISTA will play a dynamic role in ending poverty by continuing to expand our network of clients and partners through community outreach and a monthly newsletter, improve data tracking tools and support administration, support the coordination of client trainings, and strengthen sustainability through grant-writing and data tracking. As an MCNW VISTA, you will be part of a larger cohort of AmeriCorps VISTAs coordinated by Mercy Corps Northwest. Early applications are strongly encouraged. Selections are made on a rolling basis. We are looking for someone with a passion for supporting low-income entrepreneurs, excellent writing skills, and administration experience to be part of the MCNW team in Southern Washington.
