YNDC Neighborhood Organizing VISTA
Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) is seeking candidates for a Neighborhood Organizing VISTA position who will increase our capacity to bring individuals out of poverty by eliminating barriers to economic opportunity that exist in our neighborhoods. This will be accomplished by equipping residents, organizations and institutions with the tools to harness their own power to affect neighborhood progress. Members will work alongside a talented and highly motivated team of organizing staff and neighborhood leaders and will help to organize people and resources to accomplish these tasks. Re-purposing vacant property will create a physical environment that encourages economic opportunity and neighborhood reinvestment. Equipping neighborhood residents, groups, and institutions with the tools and skills necessary to harness their own collective power will help to eliminate social and structural barriers to opportunity while ensuring that reinvestment benefits residents. YNDC seeks individuals who are eager to make a real and lasting impact transforming neighborhoods into meaningful places where people invest time, money, and energy into their homes and community. Candidates should possess strong written and verbal communication skills, basic computer proficiency, ability to use Microsoft Office, the ability to work with a diverse group of people, a strong work-ethic, and an earnest desire to get things done.
