Stewards VISTA: Conservancy of Cuyahoga National Park
The program will increase diversity, equity, and inclusion and promote environmental justice to create access to national parks through the Employment Pipeline and Health Equity & Environmental Justice initiatives. The stigma of mental health in African American and Hispanic communities have been noted as barriers to economic opportunities. The program addresses the utilization of greenspace to advance health equity as well as creating a culture of inclusion. The Akron and Cleveland pilot of the Health Equity program includes the Mental Health Symposium which addresses the stigma, lack of information on mental health, cultural and/or linguistic misunderstanding, inaccessibility of mental health services, and care inequality in relation to minority mental health. The Employment Pipeline program provides underrepresented candidates with access to gainful employment and non-traditional career paths. Applicants are reviewed and placed on a rolling basis, so apply early to be considered!
