College of Menominee Nation: VISTA Climate and Natural Resource Planning
College of Menominee Nation: Sustainable Development Institute
Menominee County faces considerable challenges to sustainable development and natural resource planning. Each household has an average of three individuals per home and one car available as their main source of transportation. There is only one grocery store in the entire county and the majority of its items are processed foods. In addition, over 35% of the population lives in poverty. College of Menominee Nation's Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) is dedicated to examining sustainability issues and applying them to indigenous models of sustainable development. We are searching for a VISTA member to help us build capacity in the community, locate barriers the community is facing surrounding natural resources, and help find solutions that are culturally-based and sustainable. This VISTA year will offer lots of room for growth, including natural resource management, community development, and indigenous sustainability models. Come join our team and serve as our Tribal Resilience VISTA member!
