BakerRipley Community Engagement AmeriCorps VISTA


About the organization

BakerRipley goes where we are invited to go and we do what we are asked to do. No matter where we live, we all want the same things for our families. We want financial stability, we want to learn and we want to belong. Our Impact is therefore targeted towards strengthening community engagement, improving financial well-being and increasing educational attainment in every community we serve. Working side-by-side with community leaders and residents, we discover their strengths, craft a collective vision and design a plan to make their aspirations a reality. Simply put, we build upon what works.


Become a Community Engagement VISTA and play a vital role in helping communities out of poverty by developing and implementing an engagement plan that will build BakerRipley's capacity to serve the low income-low literacy adult community. As a VISTA, you will increase community engagement through strengthening communications strategies, defining audiences and constituencies to deliver impactful and engaging messages, using digital communications, social media postings, participating in community events and meetings, and staying abreast of adult literacy initiatives both on national and local levels. Through these activities the VISTA will mobilize local resources to increase the capacity of adult literacy programs to build lasting solutions to poverty.
