WellShare International Engagement VISTA, IAMNCC
WellShare International envisions a world where your zip code, your skin color, and your birthplace do not determine your access to quality healthcare, and where all people can achieve optimal health and wellness. We are a non-profit organization headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a forty-year history of partnering with communities, health care systems, government, and social service providers to promote health equity and wellbeing. Using a community health worker (CHW) model, we work with immigrant communities across Minnesota and with rural communities in Africa. Our programs serve people across the lifespan – including pregnant women, infants, children, youth, adults, and the elderly. This position will develop and operationalize a program efficacy plan in collaboration with WellShare program staff. The VISTA will suggest system improvements, identify internal strategies aimed at increasing program quality and capacity. The goal is to reach more people with our existing resources by identifying modalities to better integrate collaboration across programs, reducing silos and leveraging cross departmental resources for common advancement. The VISTA will strengthen relationships with education and workforce development institutions to provide community health career pathways. This project is part of the Community Corps VISTA Program, operated by Iowa & Minnesota Campus Compact. The program strives to eliminate poverty through campus-community partnerships by placing full-time capacity building support in nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions. ***Please also send cover letter and resume to supervisor. Interviews will occur on a rolling basis. Preference given to candidates who apply early.***
