E3.19 Community Equity and Economic Opportunity VISTA
Duluth is experiencing a workforce shortage. For example in Q2 of 2018 there were about 1700 more jobs than workers available to fill them. At the same time, unemployment for African Americans and Native Americans in Duluth remains high – 23% for African Americans and 13% for Native Americans, as opposed to just under 3% for the population as a whole. Poverty rates are similarly high for these two groups, and despite a range of efforts over the last decade these disparities have not changed. Ecolibrium3 is a nonprofit that works at the intersection of Energy, Equity, and Economic Vitality. This AmeriCorps position will work with Ecolibrium3, the City of Duluth, and nonprofit partners to build community capacity to reduce these disparities by expanding partnerships, researching best practices, and developing a strategic approach to change.
