Collaborate across sectors, connect with community, and develop professionally as you help improve quality of life and accelerate revitalization at the IndyEast Promise Zone!
Promise Zones are high-poverty, high capacity communities where the federal government works with local leaders to increase efforts and achieve neighborhood-created goals and priorities over a ten-year period. Established in 2015, the IndyEast Promise Zone has worked across sectors to improve the quality of life and accelerate revitalization on the Eastside of Indianapolis, Indiana. Over the next several years, the IndyEast Promise Zone, neighborhood residents, and implementation partners will work to carry out activities and interventions while leveraging new opportunities. VISTA members will work with our well-established community development team throughout their term of service and get connected with partners at all levels (neighborhood, city, state, and federal) while receiving professional development.

The Community & Neighborhood Development Coordinator will support ongoing, community-focused initiatives in the Promise Zone related to Housing, Education, Public Safety, Economic Development, and Job Creation. The member will collaborate with local nonprofits, businesses, and governmental agencies to lift up our economically diverse community through the promotion of affordable housing, neighborhood investment, and redevelopment strategies. To accomplish this, the Community & Neighborhood Development Coordinator will facilitate steering committees and workgroups focused on neighbor-defined goals and implement activities that bring residents together. The Community & Neighborhood Development Coordinator will act as a bridge between residents, local organizations, and the Promise Zone while building capacity for change-making initiatives.
