National Housing Trust - Digital Literacy VISTA (LitMN)
 
 
 
This is an exciting opportunity to impact more than 500 households in affordable housing communities located in the District of Columbia. This is a unique opportunity to work with an organization dedicated to the success of the affordable housing communities and residents in which we serve. In addition, the position will receive additional professional development support through Literacy Minnesota, an organization committed to sharing the power of learning through education, community building and advocacy. With support from Literacy Minnesota, the Digital Literacy VISTA will expand existing, community-level digital literacy and navigation efforts across 8 affordable housing communities in the District of Columbia. The VISTA's work will focus on providing long-term, sustainable solutions for residents living in NHT communities and support digital knowledge learning within NHT's Community Outreach and Impact team. Essential to success will be a flexible, compassionate self-starter with a passion for bridging the digital divide among low-income families. Recognizing the breadth of work associated with digital navigation and the systemic barriers to community-based solutions, the Digital Literacy VISTA will be supported by the Managing Director of Community Outreach and Impact, COI associate, Resident Service Coordinators, and community stakeholders to ensure appropriate programmatic planning, implementation and management. The Digital Navigator VISTA will be co-supervised by the COI Associate and one of the RSCs.
