We are looking for a VISTA!
The Innovation Acceleration Strategy (IAS) program is a year long community-based economic diversification planning process.
We will be working with five communities in Southern West Virginia who are ready, willing and able to start identifying what they want to see in their community, and planning on how to grow and build these sectors.
But, these communities will need support to make this project a success. That is where you come in!
So, if you are ready to serve in helping communities collaborate among themselves, with local government and economic development officials and sector partners in their chosen fields, then apply for this VISTA opportunity.
You’ll help identify and work with community leaders, plan community meetings, help with vital sector research and potential funding opportunities, and work toward making these economic diversification plans a reality for southern West Virginia. Training opportunities are provided for you as well!
This is a full time, 40 hours a week position, and VISTA receive a modest stipend and an end of service educational award to pay for college or to pay off student loans. (Here’s everything you might need to know about VISTA…)
