Assets & Opportunity Network
Prosperity Indiana supports a network of individuals and organizations - community-based nonprofits, governments and private enterprises - by providing capacity, financial resources, expertise, and connections that make community development work in Indiana. Asset building refers to increasing financial and tangible assets, focusing on long-term development of individuals, families and communities. The Indiana Assets & Opportunity Network was established in 2014, with staffing by Prosperity Indiana. The network is expanding opportunities and knowledge around financial capability, asset-building and fighting predatory practices and needs additional support to develop new systems, processes and connections. The Assets & Opportunity Network VISTA will assess programmatic needs, engage the Network's current partners, seek ways to build capacity, secure resources, attract new partners, create data collection systems, establish new programs, utilize technology to advance the Network's mission, and develop materials to tell the Network's story. Candidates must possess organizational and leadership skills, verbal and written communication skills, and work both independently and as a team player. They should bring a focus on metrics and data-driven decision making and preferably have experience with research methods, tool design, and validation. Understanding community economic development and nonprofits is also pertinent. Prosperity Indiana is located in downtown Indianapolis. Contact Carey W Craig, National Service Program Manager, at for more information. Start date: August 20, 2018.
