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. By expanding the potential customer base for area farmers’ markets the Member will help farms sell more to more people strengthening the markets’ viability. By creating informational tours at farmers’ markets, the Member will enable shoppers to learn ‘how’ to maneuver around the market, give an opportunity to ask questions and get comfortable with how markets operate, making it a more welcoming place.

Required AmeriCorps Qualifications: A US citizen, US national, or Lawful Permanent Resident Alien of the U.S.. At least 18 years old. A minimum of a high school diploma or GED. No more than three previous terms as an AmeriCorps member. Pass a criminal history background check, including an FBI check.

Desired Qualifications
•      Strong writing and verbal communication skills
•      Able to serve both independently and as a member of a team
•      Comfort navigating computer software programs (i.e. Microsoft Office, Airtable, Constant Contact, WordPress, Survey Monkey)
•      Training and experience pertinent to the Regional Collaboration Coordinator position and projects listed above
•      Experience training and educating community members and volunteers

Spanish proficiency preferred. Comfortable engaging with people of various backgrounds including government   agency staff, farmers, farmers’ market managers, business owners, and community members. Comfortable speaking on the telephone. For questions about CISA’s service positions, contact Devon Whitney-Deal, Devon@buylocalfood.org, 413-665-7100 x22.
