Red Lake Nation College: Community Education and Training VISTA
Red Lake Nation College
About the organization
The VISTA Member will support the Red Lake Nation College’s mission to provide excellent higher education grounded in the Ojibwe language and culture of the Red Lake Nation. RLNC is an inclusive educational institution with a particular aim to engage and inspire tribal citizens of the Red Lake Nation and neighboring tribal nations in Minnesota to pursue higher education and training to become future leaders of their nations. The VISTA member will play an important role in identifying and addressing community employment needs by creating practical and cost-effective training that benefit tribal citizens and members. Most importantly, the member will be an active participant in addressing the education and opportunity gap of Native Americans in Minnesota by increasing access, opportunity, and hope for higher education.
The Community Education & Customized Training Coordinator will build capacity at Red Lake Nation College through developing community education and training programs. The VISTA will work closely with the Director of Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment to develop and implement these programs to train future leadership and talent based on community needs. Thus, the member will build community relations with local employers to assess employment problems, needs, and opportunities. The member will assist with the research design, data collection, and analysis to help design data-informed programs. The VISTA will be based at the Red Lake Campus but will collaborate with staff and faculty at the Minneapolis Campus and surrounding communities.
The ideal candidate will possess strong communication skills, demonstrate cultural competency, and have a passion for Indigenous education.
