REDF - VISTA Capacity Building Associate
REDF is working to build a better, more inclusive society where all people have jobs and support they need—and the pride, purpose, and path to self-sufficiency they’ve earned. One of our most innovative programs is LA:RISE. LA:RISE is an innovative, collaborative partnership that unites the City and County of Los Angeles’ Workforce Development System (WDS) with non-profit social enterprises and for-profit employers in order to help men and women with high barriers to employment get good jobs and stay employed. The ultimate goal of the LA:RISE program is to help vulnerable populations find employment and become self-sufficient. As LA:RISE begins its 5th year this is a crucial time for reflection and improvement to ensure that the program continues to support the community. During this time AmeriCorps VISTA members are essential in providing analyses, increasing our marketing efforts, and building systems that create efficiencies and capacity for the LA:RISE partnership and support providers throughout LA County.
