Love Your Block Summer Associate-Hartford, CT
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 to partner with community groups and activate 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 Hartford. 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 Hartford City Hall. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, VISTA members will follow the same protocol as city staff, as it pertains to working remotely.
