Resource Development VISTA at Black River Innovation Campus (BRIC)

This AmeriCorps VISTA program offers an incredible opportunity to address the widening geographic divide in our country, work towards an equitable recovery from COVID-19, and contribute to programs and models that create sustainable economic opportunity for people from all places.

VISTA members will recruit participants into digital jobs training programs, provide wrap-around supports to help participants thrive, and connect graduates with local career pathways and remote employment opportunities — all with an eye for identifying best practices to scale the training-and-career model to rural communities across the country.
