Capacity Builder & Impact
Prosperity Indiana supports a network of member organizations - community-based nonprofits, governments and private enterprises - by providing capacity, financial resources, expertise, and connections that make community development work in Indiana. Part of Prosperity Indiana's approach to building capacity in its members is through training and technical assistance. The Capacity Builder & Impact VISTA will provide capacity building services at no or low cost to member organizations. Part of the VISTA's role will be to assess capacity gaps at member organizations and deploy capacity building services to bridge these gaps on short-term or project-based initiatives. The VISTA will also help build capacity by supporting the development of a common outcomes framework for members to collect data, determine impact and tell the story of comprehensive community development. The Capacity Builder & Impact VISTA will gain exposure to the broad field of community economic development in Indiana, while supporting member organizations' efforts to change or expand how they serve their constituents. Candidates must possess organizational and leadership skills, verbal and written communication skills and work both independently and as a team player. They should have an interest in asset-based assessments and utilizing metrics to inform the delivery of outcomes, and preferably have experience with research methods, tool design and validation. Candidates should also have an understanding of communications strategies and storytelling to connect data with impact, as well as an understanding of community economic development and nonprofits. Prosperity Indiana is located in downtown Indianapolis. Contact Carey W Craig, National Service Program Manager, at for more information. Start date: August 20, 2018.
