St Johns Center Outreach & Resource Coordinator - MCNW
SJCO, located in Portland, Oregon, empowers our St. Johns and Cathedral Park neighbors through people-centered economic development. Our community has a small neighborhood feel within the larger metropolitan area. The VISTA member placed at our agency will assist in developing our Workforce and Business Development programs that connect unemployed low-income neighbors with living wage jobs. AmeriCorps VISTA members perform only indirect service; interaction with clients will be limited and the member will spend the majority of their time in an office setting. However, the SJCO VISTA member will play a dynamic role in ending poverty by conducting employer outreach and creating and maintaining an online jobs board at the neighborhood level. The VISTA member will also create online resources for local entrepreneurs, including a vacant storefront directory and calendar of upcoming workshops. They will create guides to ensure the continuity of these resources upon completion of the service term. Finally, the VISTA will conduct outreach to local social service agencies that exclusively serve low-income individuals to intentionally connect these individuals with the resources created under the project, as well as existing resources at SJCO. As an SJCO VISTA member, you will be part of a larger cohort of AmeriCorps members serving throughout Oregon and Washington State and coordinated by Mercy Corps Northwest. Early applications strongly encouraged. Selections for this role are made on a rolling basis.
