Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG) is a coalition of leaders working for economic justice and equitable resources to revitalize the Pittsburgh region. This project supports our Reimagining Communities Initiative (RCI), created to leverage PCRG’s longstanding leadership role in advocating for equitable public policy, community access to resources, and strategic organizational partnerships to build neighborhood development capacity driven by meaningful community inclusion. Work performed will positively impact the Beltzhoover, Elliott, Hazelwood, Sharpsburg, Bloomfield, and Sheraden communities and create standards of practice to be employed within RCI programming. Successful applicants will possess excellent communication skills, the ability to work closely with economically and racially diverse individuals, and an eagerness to empower residents to have a direct and meaningful role in the revitalization of their community. Proficiency with computers, Microsoft Office, social media, and basic graphic design is highly desirable.
