YNDC Seeking Candidates for Neighborhood Organizing AmeriCorps VISTA

Monday, March 18, 2019

YNDC is seeking candidates for a Neighborhood Organizing VISTA position who will increase our capacity to bring individuals out of poverty by eliminating barriers to economic opportunity that exist in our neighborhoods.

This will be accomplished by equipping residents, organizations and institutions with the tools to harness their own power to affect neighborhood progress. Members will work alongside a talented and highly motivated team of organizing staff and neighborhood leaders and will help to organize people and resources to accomplish these tasks. Re-purposing vacant property will create a physical environment that encourages economic opportunity and neighborhood reinvestment. Equipping neighborhood residents, groups, and institutions with the tools and skills necessary to harness their own collective power will help to eliminate social and structural barriers to opportunity while ensuring that reinvestment benefits residents.
