AmeriCorps VISTA- Denver, CO
About the organization
YouthBuild champions today’s opportunity youth who aspire to improve their lives and communities by building the skills and resources to reach their full potential. Through hundreds of YouthBuild programs in the United States and around the globe, these young people pursue their education, prepare for future careers, and grow into community leaders – building brighter futures for themselves, and their neighborhoods.
Mile High Youth Corps’s YouthBuild VISTA will focus on two primary areas: First, to create strategies to enhance recruitment. Second, to develop an alumni success program to support alumni in their follow-up year. Over a period of a year, we anticipate this work will result in attracting more Corpsmembers who will complete the program and successfully gain and maintain employment. All work will be completed through MHYC’s diversity, equity, and inclusion lens. The main projects for this VISTA position include developing recruitment tools and strategies, including identifying new recruitment partners, creating recruitment materials, developing an updated social media strategy, and designing interactive recruitment sessions. Alumni engagement projects include identifying best practices in alumni engagement from YouthBuild programs, developing curriculum for workshops, and developing an evaluation process to determine the effectiveness of the programming.
YouthBuild seeks candidates with strong communication skills, the ability to manage multiple projects, and a strong spirit of service.
