STL Neighborhood Foresters Program Design VISTA Member
STL Neighborhood Foresters' mission is to equip, educate, and empower residents to improve the health and vitality of the St. Louis urban tree canopy as well as the community. Hosting our first public events in 2019, we became a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2021. Our pilot program has now pruned, watered, mulched, and monitored Benton Park West neighborhood trees for two years and expanded to several new neighborhoods. This VISTA position is in the Soulard neighborhood, so members will be able to socialize with AmeriCorps St. Louis members and staff while serving near downtown St. Louis. Our program partners with existing neighborhood anchor institutions to prioritize community goals and address tree related needs. VISTA will collaborate with partners and stakeholders to raise awareness and develop stronger processes and partnerships to support effective urban forest management and community engagement efforts. The applicant should possess good communication skills, project and organizational skills, problem-solving, and the ability to work independently. VISTA members will be regularly scheduled for networking opportunities and professional development training. The project starts June 15, 2024 and ends June 14, 2025. St. Louis is a great place to live, with many free attractions and most destinations accessible without a car. For more information, email or visit
