Love Your Block VISTA- Erie, Pennsylvania
 
 
 
An initiative of the Bloomberg Center for Public Innovation at Johns Hopkins University, Cities of Services helps mayors build stronger cities by changing the way local government and residents work together. We help our coalition cities tap into resident insights, skills, and service to identify and solve critical public problems. Founded in 2009 by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Cities of Service supports a coalition of more than 280 cities, representing more than 84 million people across the Americas and Europe. The Love Your Block program brings city leaders and residents together to build stronger neighborhoods, one block at a time. Typically, cities implementing Love Your Block invite community groups to identify priority projects and award mini-grants to support neighborhood-driven solutions that the community can implement. This program focuses on helping cities partner with community groups and activates resident volunteers to repair, remediate, or otherwise address blight in their neighborhoods. Blighted properties include, but are not limited to, single-family homes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, vacant lots, parks, and other public spaces. VISTA members will help design and launch the first year of this two-year program in the City of Erie. This position requires a high level of community interaction, calling on VISTA members to build relationships with residents and partner organizations. The AmeriCorps VISTA will be working out of Erie, City Hall, and will follow the same remote work protocol as city staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
