Open Positions with EMERGE

EMERGE is currently recruiting for AmeriCorps VISTA & MN Opportunity Corps for the 2017-2018 service year. I have attached a link to both programs in this email. We find that this may be a great fit for someone with some college, a recent college graduate, or someone taking a gap year.

EMERGE VISTA Program focuses on building capacity for nonprofit and government entities that have a desire to create programming or build internal capacity to better serve individuals that may have a criminal record or may be returning from incarceration. Our program focuses on housing, financial literacy, and employment/education. Anyone interested in working behind the scenes to build capacity to serve in a re-entry capacity, VISTA is an excellent opportunity. VISTA Members have gone on to be Program Managers, Data Evaluators, Program Coordinators, and a host of other roles. More information can be found on the EMERGE VISTA Cohort webpage:http://www.emergevistacohort.org/to-be-a-vista.html ~ We have 2 positions at EMERGE & a host of positions at several community partner sites including Duluth & Rochester

EMERGE is a host site for the MN Opportunity Corps. Minnesota Opportunity Corps members serve for 11 months at a community-based organization located in the Twin Cities metro area to make a difference in the lives of individuals with multiple barriers to employment, retention, advancement and economic self-sufficiency. Members receive training and ongoing support for this position and will be placed at a partner organization serving the program's participants. This is a great opportunity for individuals that have a desire to work 1:1 with individuals and earn their Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) certification and receive training to prepare for a position as an Employment Coach, Workforce Coach, and/or Case Manager. More information can be found at the following link:https://opportunitycorps.org/ ~ EMERGE has 2 open positions, one at our North Campus off North Broadway and one at the Cedar Riverside Opportunity Center

If you have any questions, please let me know. I am also available to schedule informational meetings with prospective candidates.

Warm Regards,
