TSC VISTA 2023: Massachusetts Avenue Project
 
 
 
The Service Collaborative (TSC) VISTA Program mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and creating healthy futures for the residents of low-income communities. Our goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Service Collaborative VISTA program has partner organizations in New York State and across the country. During their term of service members, will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY. Our support includes monthly trainings, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA Leaders.

Member Duties : Massachusetts Avenue Project (MAP) is a nonprofit urban farm located on Buffalo's West Side. MAP employs youth year-round and teaches them job readiness and leadership skills through farming, the Mobile Market, kitchen and nutrition education, as well as food policy and civic engagement. The Development Coordinator VISTA will expand the delivery of MAP’s Food Access Initiative (FAI) by working closely with MAP staff to identify and diversify funding opportunities, strengthen existing funder relationships, conduct beneficiary surveys, and design marketing & communications materials. The VISTA will work on the All Access Pass programming which provides a 50% purchasing discount on produce and eggs (no application required), thus reducing the stigma of food subsidy programs, alleviating poverty, and increasing the scale and reach of FAI services.
