WVCCL Community Engagement Coordinator
The West Virginia Center for Civic Life (WVCCL) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that engages citizens in meaningful community dialogue about important public issues that affect West Virginians and the nation. The Center provides training and assistance on framing issues and developing discussion guides; convening, moderating, and reporting on forums; and moving communities from dialogue to action. The Center seeks an AmeriCorps VISTA member to help build the capacity of WVCCL, and its partners to assist West Virginians from all walks of life to increase their understanding of West Virginia’s economic situation and build connections allowing for local and statewide work addressing economic needs. Through the "Building West Virginia's Economic Future" initiative, West Virginians will come together in communities throughout the state to engage in dialogue to learn about poverty issues, understand the impact on the lives of residents, and to work together to address poverty, while ensuring significant participation by low-income individuals and promoting community dialogue and decision-making that values low-income residents as equal and important contributors to shaping the economic future of West Virginia.
