Cities of Service, Experience Matters - Tulsa, OK
Cities of Service is a nonprofit organization that helps mayors build stronger cities by changing the way local government and citizens work together. We help coalition cities tap into the knowledge, creativity, and service of their citizens to help identify and solve critical public problems. Cities of Service supports a coalition of more than 260 cities, representing over 73 million people across the Americas and Europe. With a data-driven focus on creating measurable results, Cities of Service provides counsel, expert technical assistance, and proven resources to city leaders and their staff. We bring coalition members together to share best practices, expand networks, and deepen relationships. We also design and manage competitive grant programs for cities that leverage our expertise in advising and connecting cities. The Experience Matters program mobilized volunteers ages 50+ to tackle a driver of poverty related to financial security and youth academic performance. From providing tailored tutoring support to making exterior home improvements, citizen volunteers will be making a difference on poverty and making communities stronger. For its 2019 City Hall AmeriCorps VISTA Experience Matters program, Cities of Service awarded each winning city $25,000 to be used for supporting the efforts of citizen groups and local nonprofits to fight a driver of poverty through home repairs, financial empowerment, youth academic performance, and business start-ups. VISTA members will help support the Experience Matters program in the City of Tulsa, Oklahoma. This position requires a high level of community interaction, calling on VISTA members to build relationships with residents and partner organizations. AmeriCorps VISTAs will be working out of Tulsa City Hall.
