Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group VISTA Leader
Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG) is a coalition of leaders working for economic justice and equitable resources to revitalize the Pittsburgh region. As the area’s foremost convener of community based organizations, PCRG ensures that grassroots voices remain visible to financial institutions, government agencies, and the business community. This facilitates the development of public policy and strategic partnerships responsive to community need, securing expanded access to housing, transit, and capital for a more vibrant and resilient Greater Pittsburgh. PCRG’s VISTA team fulfills a crucial part of this mission, developing resources and systems closest to the people that need them to establish a platform for lasting community-driven change. The PCRG VISTA Leader will organize support, guidance, mentorship, and recruitment activities to ensure the success of seven VISTA members as they fulfill these objectives. Primary responsibilities will include supporting the selection of high quality VISTAs by creating and executing communication strategies and streamlining the screening process, assisting with the development of orientation and ongoing training of VISTAs and their site supervisors, coordinating and monitoring monthly reports, and enhancing PCRG’s VISTA project sustainability. The VISTA Leader will also provide on-going professional development to the cohort during the service term. Note that the candidate must have served at least one full term as an AmeriCorps or Peace Corps member to qualify for this position.
