ECDC African Community Center (ACC) is a community-based organization whose mission is to help newcomers to the United States rebuild safe, sustainable lives in Denver after fleeing war and persecution. Founded in 2001, ACC provides comprehensive services to 1,300+ newcomers per year. Through your work at ACC, you will be part of an agency that transforms the lives of at-risk populations when they are at their most vulnerable. ACC’s location in the booming Denver metro area will give you access to all that the region has to offer, from a multitude of outdoor recreation opportunities to exciting cultural events and festivals. Whether you prefer to spend your weekends rock climbing, relaxing at parks, snowboarding, walking miles of city trails, visiting museums, attending festivals, or watching professional sporting events or Broadway shows, Denver has what you’re looking for. As our VISTA, you will help us strengthen our marketing and outreach capacity. In doing so, you will increase community awareness of at-risk populations, improve organizational sustainability, and, in turn, contribute to community members’ self-sufficiency and integration. This will be a great opportunity to hone your marketing and communication skills, learn about newcomer populations, assist in the growth of ACC’s We Made This social enterprise, and work with a diverse and fascinating staff. We are looking for someone who is flexible, organized, able to demonstrate cross-cultural sensitivity, and excellent in written and verbal communication. Previous experience in graphic design and/or branding and marketing is highly preferred. Bonus points for experience working with at-risk populations and competence in a language other than English!
