Position Description:

This position collaborates with the HopeWorks leadership team to develop their existing social enterprises designed to create career pathways for low-income residents (interns) of affordable housing, especially formerly homeless residents. The VISTA Member serves in an entrepreneurial environment at HopeWorks Station collaborating with fellow staff members and community resource persons to develop growth plans for ReNewWorks, GroundWorks and CafeWorks.
