Greater Asbury Park Community Development Initiative
About Greater Asbury Park Community Development Initiative: Greater Asbury Park Community Development Initiative’s (GAPCDI) is one of several planning boards supported by the NJ Office of the Attorney General. The GAPCDI focuses on increasing school attendance, in addition to reducing youth crime rates by providing better leverage of existing resources to stabilize families and reduce risk factors impacting community safety. These efforts include increasing protective factors (FCIU, CIACC, WIB/WDF, YSC, trauma informed care/communities) and decreasing risk factors (poverty, substance abuse, mental health/behavioral health, unstable housing). GAPCDI, is comprised of local government agencies, law enforcement, higher education, public schools, educators, faith-based and community based organizations, nonprofits, and residents who work together to promote positive youth development and curb juvenile delinquency. This is a New Jersey Campus Compact Statewide Collective Impact AmeriCorps VISTA Project. With our college and university partners, New Jersey Campus Compact is building a cohort of AmeriCorps VISTA members to support the anti-poverty work of 14 large-scale, cross-sector organizations focused on increasing education, economic opportunity, and healthy futures in NJ’s underserved urban areas. We seek a qualified, civic-minded individual to be the AmeriCorps VISTA serving at Greater Asbury Park Community Development Initiative.
