Serve New York VISTA 2020: The Tool Library
Serve New York mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members will focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and create healthy futures for the residents of New York. SNY’s goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them, to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Serve New York program has partner organizations in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Bath, Ithaca, Geneva, and White Plains. During their term of service, members will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY, Inc. Our support includes monthly training, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA leaders.

Member Duties : The Tool Library’s mission is to provide communities with tools needed to create the change they want. As Western New York’s only nonprofit, community-based tool lending library, The Tool Library has provided the community with affordable access to tools for more than 8 years. An active member base of more than 450 residents, businesses, and community organizations has access to an inventory of over 3,000 tools housed at our walkable and transit-accessible storefront located in University Heights area. Helping to alleviate poverty, The Tool Library has also hosted dozens of skill-building workshops relating to home improvement, general maintenance, life skills, gardening, and more. The VISTA member will help the Tool Library scale its community work and become a leader in providing issue-based programming by researching, planning, and organizing a lead-based paint remediation action plan based around a sharing economy model of tool and equipment access.
