9 AmeriCorps VISTA Positions Available - Vindicator

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. has nine AmeriCorps VISTA positions available, including a VISTA leader position.

Two VISTA positions will be focused on these activities: strengthening YNDC’s capacity to reach those in need of affordable housing and housing counseling by developing new networks for outreach, as well as programming and tracking mechanisms to provide long-term support to clients; empowering low-income residents by training neighborhood groups to mobilize, plan and implement grass-roots projects to eliminate blight which hinders reinvestment in their neighborhoods; expanding the ability of YNDC and low-income food-based entrepreneurs to provide fresh and healthy foods to neighborhoods with the greatest need through the development of marketing and distribution strategies; and building sustainable infrastructure at YNDC to engage low-income residents over the long term as leaders in establishing a common vision and planning for the future of their communities.

To apply, interested candidates must visit and complete the AmeriCorps online application process.
