Thriving Networks
VISTA Strong Communities, a cohort overseen by the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development, is seeking a VISTA candidate to serve at the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations (NACEDA; NACEDA’s mission is to lead the community development field and its partners in shaping and influencing strategies that advance community prosperity. NACEDA achieves this mission by strengthening its members through trainings, convenings, and cross-sector partnerships. NACEDA’s members are 40 state and regional associations for community development in 25 states and DC. NACEDA’s Thriving Networks program builds the capacity of state and regional community development associations to better provide support to their members – community-based organizations that serve low- and moderate-income communities. Thriving Networks programmatic work primarily includes professional and peer trainings, consultations, and conferences (examples include: strategic communications trainings, facilitating board retreats, sharing members’ expertise in hosting their own AmeriCorps VISTA programs, and more). The Thriving Networks VISTA project will build the capacity of NACEDA’s Thriving Networks program by working closely with staff to: develop an efficient analysis and use for results from NACEDA’s member capacity survey, systematize NACEDA’s brokering of capacity building and technical assistance for members, and explore business models for service delivery.
