SLV GO Development Coordinator VISTA
 
 
 
San Luis Valley Great Outdoors is looking for a dynamic college graduate who is passionate about outdoor recreation and trails for increasing health and wellness in San Luis Valley communities. The San Luis Valley is a rural region of Southern Colorado that consists of 6 counties with the average elevation above 7,500 feet. Alamosa, CO is located within 90 miles of 3 ski resorts, and the Valley offers a host of mountaineering, mountain biking, climbing, and hiking opportunities all within our watershed. We are surrounded by mountains with the 8000-square mile Valley opening to New Mexico. SLV GO! is a project of the SLV Development Resources Group which facilitates economic and community development in partnership with local governments, nonprofits, and small businesses. In 2013, San Luis Valley Great Outdoors Coalition (SLV GO! Coalition) developed a master plan to partner with local to make trails and outdoor recreation accessible and stimulate investment and job creation. SLV GO! creates healthy lifestyles, builds economic vitality, and provides exciting outdoor recreation resources that make our communities proud. With this master plan, the SLV GO! Coalition offers the Valley’s counties and communities a set of tools and strategies for enhancing the quality of life for residents through outdoor recreation. You will be working in our SLV communities attending meetings, visiting rural communities and seeing their plans come to life, and developing that information into grants and promoting our partner projects via a variety of media to assist our communities. As the Development Coordinator VISTA, you will leave your service year with experience in community involvement, grant development and marketing.
