E3.20 TEAM LEADER- Ecolibrium3 VISTA Corps
The Ecolibrium3 VISTA Corps began in 2017 with ten members focused on expanding capacity of local organizations and government agencies to address intractable community issues. The program focuses on a holistic model of addressing poverty from various angles such as equity and inclusion, food access and systems, government policy, community development, education, and design and creative placemaking. In 2020, the Ecolibrium3 will have 24 members will help nonprofits to advance neighborhood revitalization and economic success for residents, public health and tribes to combat opioids and hunger, and community organizations to expand opportunities for youth. The Ecolibrium3 VISTA Corps uses its depth of community knowledge to identify which levers may produce the largest impact on reducing poverty. We seek a VISTA Leader that can help develop the support resources needed for VISTA members to succeed in their positions, develop the Ecolibrium3 program to better serve the community, and is interested in directing their own special project for capacity development. The VISTA Leaders should have excellent communications skills, be flexible, be able to empathize with members and community representatives to identify issues and possible solutions, and be a strong ambassador for AmeriCorps. The Ecolibrium3 VISTA Leader will co-lead a cohort with one other VISTA Leader (position rotates in August) and will ensure strong individual support to members and the development of a cohesive cohort. The VISTA Leader will build upon their previous AmeriCorps or Peace Corps experience to create a a rewarding experience for themselves, their members, and our program sites.
