Tribal VISTA: AL - Knife River Indian Villiages
 
 
 
Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) provides young women and men with structured, safe, and challenging service and educational opportunities through projects that promote personal growth, the development of social skills, and an ethic of natural resource stewardship. The Ancestral Lands (SCC-AL) program was created to serve Native American youth, working to provide the same opportunities that SCC offers through its other programs. It is the mission of the Southwest Conservation Corps to empower individuals to positively impact their lives, their communities, and the environment; and the Ancestral Lands’ vision is to have Native youth leading our Nations back to ecological and cultural well-being.

Member Duties : The VISTA will work with local Native stakeholders within the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Tribes, non-profit organizations, and local, state, and federal agencies to communicate the opportunities that an Ancestral Lands program can bring to the surrounding Native communities and gauge the desires and needs of these communities. The VISTA will do this by planning and implementing at least one Youth PLS event at Knife River Indian Villages, hosting a project work hitch, and through listening sessions that engage the surrounding communities and give space for their voices to be heard. VISTA will work to create buy-in and support among these communities for an ALCC program and will create a recruitment process for other positions that will support the program, including volunteers, future VISTA members and two, 6-month interns. This opportunity will include national training and conference opportunities, professional development through staff shadowing, partnerships, and engagement.
