Rural Racial Equity Capacity Coordinator VISTA at The Hub

West Virginia Community Development Hub

About the organization

The West Virginia Community Development Hub supports West Virginians with the tools and training they need to lead and spark positive change in their hometowns and across our state. In 2009, The Hub was founded by a small group of passionate, committed community development leaders who saw an opportunity to establish a new, innovative approach to catalyze community growth and transformational change in rural areas of West Virginia. Their goal was to create an organization that would serve as a technical assistance provider, a coach for communities, and a team to connect the network of resources available across the state to serve West Virginia communities.

The Hub’s purpose is to
1. Coach volunteer community leadership teams to help them build sustained development in rural communities; and
2. Grow the overall community economic development system in West Virginia through collaborative partnerships that use innovative approaches to address systemic challenges for rural development.

Duties

At The Hub, we believe in the power of community. We are an active and collaborative participant in the community and economic development ecosystem in West Virginia and the Appalachian region. Through collaborative partnerships, we use innovative approaches to address systemic challenges for rural development. Within this ecosystem, racial inequity remains a systemic challenge that must be addressed to truly build a better future for all. This VISTA position will work in collaboration with The Hub’s Racial Equity Fellow to begin to implement new systems within The Hub to begin to address these inequities internally, while also continuing to engage with partners and other stakeholders within and outside of the community and economic development ecosystem.
This position will start on June 6th, July 5th, or July 8th, 2022, depending on candidate availability, and can be based in The Hub’s Charleston or Buckhannon office. Teleservice within West Virginia may be available for the right candidate, as permitted by AmeriCorps.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and will remain open until we find the right applicant.
