E3.18 Ecolibrium3 Resilience Corps VISTA LEADER
 
 
 
The Ecolibrium3 Resilience Corps began in 2017 with ten members focused on expanding capacity of local organizations and government agencies to address intractable community issues. Member positions range from working with City government on building equity and health into community plans, to working on community development at arts and neighborhood-based organizations, to combating opioids and hunger. In 2018, the Ecolibrium3 Cohort will expand to sixteen members with additional focus on closing the opportunity gap experienced by children in poverty, expanding partnerships with the Fond du Lac Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa, and defining the Lincoln Park Innovation Zone. As an innovative program, the Ecolibrium3 Resilience Corps uses its depth of community knowledge to identify which levers may produce the largest impact on reducing poverty. We seek a VISTA Leader that can help develop the support resources needed for VISTA members to succeed in their positions. The VISTA Leader should have excellent communication skills, be flexible, be able to empathize with members and community representatives to identify issues and possible solutions, and be a strong ambassador for AmeriCorps. In addition, to the activities each Ecolibrium3 cohort member will do as part of their positions, one joint cohort activity will be designed and implemented by the members. The VISTA Leader will serve as project manager for the collaborative project.
