Huerfano County Community Development Associate
 
 
 
Downtown Colorado, Inc is a statewide organization of Do-ers dedicated to downtowns! We have worked across Colorado for the past 40 years to build vibrant, thriving downtowns. We have members across the state and work in rural and metropolitan areas. Our headquarters are in Denver, CO, this site is primarily based in Walsenburg, CO but will work in all of Huerfano County. Huerfano County has a population of 6,820 between three municipalities. Huerfano County boasts great outdoor recreation access to the Spanish Peaks, Lathrop State Park, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and the Cuchara Mountain Park. If you are looking for an opportunity to serve in a gorgeous setting, this is the position for you! In this position you will interact with business and community members in the Sector Partnership + regional partners to disseminate information about employment and educational opportunities. You will also support the Recovery and Resiliency Plan working group as they work to address the housing shortages, stabilize the economy, provide new job opportunities, and alleviate poverty. This will include convening working groups on these topics + connecting appropriate resources. You will finally convene the regional Placemaking committee who has worked to install murals, banners, and other art installations. An independent worker with strong written and verbal skills, with an interest in community outreach would thrive in this position. DCI prides itself in our program’s ability to connect you across the state. VISTAs serving with DCI will receive a membership giving you access to our events and trainings with others across the state. DCI also hosts an annual conference you will receive a ticket to attend.
