Summary of Position

  • Implement organizing activities (letter-writing, call-in days, social media campaigns, etc.) that educate and mobilize community organizations and leaders around a resident-driven campaign; 
  • Develop communications material (e.g., slides, factsheets, action alerts) that educate local partners about complex policy issues; 
  • Build the capacity of organizational leaders to engage their constituents in advocacy activities;

  • A humble leader – ability to listen well and support problem solving processes grounded in the experiences of low-income communities and communities of color; willingness to adapt plans and make decisions that align with the goals and values of resident leaders. 
  • Internally motivated and persistent – ability to allocate time across tasks within a timeline; willingness to follow up and follow through in order to maintain relationships with partners. 
  • An adaptive communicator – ability to clearly articulate project goals and messages to distinct audiences, including those in varying positions of authority, from service providers to decision-makers. Ability to communicate complex issues in a way that is easy to understand.

AmeriCorps

TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated start-up environmental non-profit preparing and mobilizing emerging leaders to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature. Working at the intersection of the land conservation and urban agriculture movements, our vision is to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for ALL people in EVERY community.

This year’s TerraCorps program will support up to eighty-eight full-time AmeriCorps Members across three states (MA, RI, and CT), serving in one of five positions: Land Stewardship Coordinator (LSC), Regional Collaboration Coordinator (RCC), Community Engagement Coordinator (CEC), Youth Education Coordinator (YEC), or Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator (SAC).  Members will serve in full-time, 11-month terms (August 31st, 2020-July 30, 2021) in which they complete at least 1,700 hours of service with one of our partner organizations. Members receive a living allowance, education award, and additional AmeriCorps benefits.
 
Regional Collaboration Coordinator with CISA: Community Involved In Sustaining Agriculture (CISA).1 Sugarloaf Street. South Deerfield, MA 01373.
 
Regional Collaboration Coordinators (RCC) build the long-term capacity of their Service Sites by assessing community needs related to land conservation and land access and then organizing collaborative community projects to help meet these needs. They convene and coordinate municipal boards, all-volunteer local land trusts, planning agencies, academic institutions, nonprofits, government agencies, neighborhood groups, community housing associations, and local businesses to build regional networks, and organize collaborative cross-sector working groups to initiate new projects around community needs.  By educating landowners, farmers, and community groups and organizing multi-stakeholder projects that increase access to funding, RCCs empower diverse people to create healthy, vibrant communities.
 
TerraCorps members engage with their supervisors to develop and carry out three or more capacity building projects over the course of the service year. Some of these projects will involve recruiting, training, and/or managing community volunteers. CISA has proposed the following potential projects for their Regional Collaboration Coordinator:

CISA intends to help build sales at farmers’ markets, through the Healthy Incentive Program (HIP). It is our goal to bring non-traditional shoppers to the market to increase their access to local, fresh food and expand the market for market venders. CISA’s TerraCorps Member will collaborate with farmers’ market venders and managers, as well as partner organizations to create training materials that can be used to educate families about SNAP/HIP acceptance at markets.

The TerraCorps Member will focus heavily on building strong relationships with partner organizations that have direct relationships with low-income residents.  The goal of this project is to educate communities about the use of SNAP and HIP at farmers’ markets to ensure they know how they can receive the most out of the program. HIP makes markets more accessible to the broader community and currently we know that many families are not aware of how to use/access this benefit. A volunteer training program will be established with the assistance of the TerraCorps member to train volunteers that can then table at markets to answer questions related to SNAP/HIP and local agriculture. Volunteers will also be able to attend partner agency meetings to educate their staff on all the rules pertaining to HIP, where and how to use it. The member will be responsible for recruiting, promoting, and training new volunteers while working with CISA and farmers’ market managers throughout the Pioneer Valley.

Another priority for TerraCorps RCC will be to make markets more welcoming for new shoppers and non-English speakers.

Covid 19 Response Consultants

Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII)

BARHII is actively involved in COVID-19 response and recovery efforts. Immediately after the “shelter in place” orders began, BARHII health departments and Rise Together’s core community partners developed the BARHII-Rise Together COVID-19 Health and Economic Equity Response platform. The platform includes recommendations for immediate housing stability and homelessness prevention activities, emergency financial aid for impacted individuals, support for small business and social enterprises, protections for undocumented communities, and strategies to address racial health disparities. BARHII supports region wide implementation of these policy solutions through landscape analysis on adoption strategies, production of data briefs and reports, as well as sophisticated coordination with health departments, elected officials, and community partners to pass and implement new policies. We also offer training and support for implementation.

We are currently seeking consultants in the following program areas:
Communications or Public Information Officer to create and implement messages on health-protective strategies for communities experiencing racial and ethnic health outcome inequities. This work will focus on creating and implementing messaging and identifying and securing effective messengers to reach those most highly impacted by COVID-19, including African American, Pacific Islander, and Latinx communities.

Fair Chance Support: People who are incarcerated are facing acute COVID-19 health challenges. Escalated unemployment poses significant threats to people with histories of incarceration, who already face discrimination when seeking housing and employment. This strategy partner will develop a response effort to mitigate discrimination and advance equity in this area.
Data Analysis and Epidemiological Capacity to identify and track trends in COVID-19 impacts and produce materials to guide response and recovery.

Desired Qualifications
