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 Economic Development Coordinator will collaborate with the Promise Zone Director and community stakeholders to increase economic activity in the IndyEast Promise Zone area, centering on small business support, arts-based community development, and creative infrastructure. The Economic Development Coordinator will partner with local leaders and small businesses to increase vibrancy along our commercial corridors while establishing the Promise Zone area as a regional destination for arts, dining, and recreation. To accomplish this, the Economic Development Coordinator will facilitate steering committee meetings and workgroups, develop workshops, and implement activities that lift up our small businesses. The Economic Development Coordinator will act as a collaborator and connector, building relationships and becoming involved in economically-focused associations.
