M:STL – DSCC Green Social Enterprise Summer Associate VISTA
The main goal of this VISTA position will be to strengthen our organization’s efforts to support our service area residents with access to information related to housing as well as provide residents with tools for better engaging in decisions about public infrastructure and development in their neighborhood. This VISTA will work to facilitate community by supporting our community empowerment infrastructure. We support many community organizations such as the business districts and participatory budgeting processes. We would like to centralize these outreach and engagement of residents through an analysis of the current tools and modes of community communication and to re-establish our “community empowerment” committee and “youth council” with a new approach. Instead of building traditional “block teams” with “captains” we envision an affinity group model as a coalition of smaller committees that can be responsive and flexible, yet keep initiatives aligned to broader neighborhood plans. Neighborhood plans are formal documents adopted by the City of St. Louis for strategic land use and other development related issues. These land use guidelines are created through a community process and should directly related to community concerns.

Member Duties : The Green Social Enterprise Summer Associate member will build the capacity of DSCC by supporting the piloting of a green social enterprise in our neighborhoods that directly impact low income residents in South St. Louis City, specifically in Dutchtown, Gravois Park, Marine Villa and Mt. Pleasant. As a result of the Summer Associate member’s service more residents will become environmentally engaged in recycling efforts and at least one new social enterprise model will be piloted to support sustainable programing in our community and divert waste from streets, alleys, and landfills to other community development activities. Increased neighborhood stability through waste diversion is essential to decreasing the poverty level in the neighborhood.
