AmeriCorps VISTA Partnerships & Outreach Coordinator
At New Door Ventures and our social enterprise businesses, we are always looking to meet people who are interested in helping young adults prepare for the modern workforce. If you want to be part of a high performing team that serves the greater good — both on a daily basis and over the long haul — we want to hear from you. New Door Ventures helps at-risk youth get ready for work and life. Through real opportunities to work and learn, we provide assistance to young people ages 16-24 who need support in making the increasingly difficult transition to adulthood. We provide youth with the meaningful jobs and training that they need to succeed in the workplace, and the personal support they need for the rest of life. We offer a comprehensive approach to helping youth succeed through:
- Paid Jobs- job internships in nonprofit businesses we own and community businesses/organizations with whom we partner.
- Job Readiness- Skill-building training in workshop settings with topics ranging from interviewing and resume writing to personal finance and nutrition.
- Supportive Community- Community-building activities that provide youth with a chance to lead, a chance to succeed and a chance to try something new.
- We also offer 1:1 support with highly skilled case managers.
Essential to serving more youth, New Door seeks assistance understanding demographic trends and recruitment strategies as well as support creating systems for securing and maintaining employment partners. This position will assist with outreach and program building in three areas: relationship building, infrastructure creation, and strategic outreach planning.
Additionally, this VISTA will have the opportunity to create systems for engaging staff, volunteers, and graduates in recruitment. There are two types of individuals being recruited: the youth that utilize our program and the Ally business partners that provide jobs for youth. This work is both hands-on and strategic in nature, requiring flexibility and initiative for relationship building as well as thoughtful data synthesis and analysis. Entering our 5th year, New Door has found our most successful VISTA’s thrive in a highly collaborative and cross-functional team environment.
