Posted 3 weeks ago

The Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program (RRP) VISTA Project's mission is to support refugees' effective resettlement in Arizona. Refugees face a wide variety of difficult challenges in achieving self-sufficiency.

These challenges include such issues as becoming familiar with their new country, securing an affordable place to live, learning about resources available to assist them in resettlement, finding and retaining employment, acquiring a new language and learning how to access/use public services, such as transportation and technology. The Technology and Transportation Employment Accelerator VISTA will be housed at the Welcome to America Project in Phoenix. The purpose of the assignment is to increase the volume of refugees utilizing bikes and computers as employment tools.

The VISTA will create a systematic and sustainable approach to the collection, preparation, and distribution of bicycles. Success will also require expansion of referral network (conduits to refugee beneficiaries). Evidence is clear that if one has increased technological resources and transportation options the pool of potential employers is expanded. Currently, WTAP is reaching a small percentage of beneficiaries with bikes and computers. By increasing our efficiencies and expanding networks, we can create a sustainable program to reach a far greater percentage of refugees, enhancing refugee job attainment.

Refugees face a wide variety of difficult challenges in achieving self-sufficiency. These challenges include such issues as becoming familiar with their new country, securing an affordable place to live, learning about resources available to assist them in resettlement, finding and retaining employment, acquiring a new language and learning how to use the resources available to them to become more self-sufficient. The Financial Literacy VISTA Coordinator will be housed at Friendly House, Inc. in Phoenix. This project will primarily serve refugee clients within their first five years living in the United States (US). These are individuals who are new to the US and are still working to learn English and find employment. The VISTA in this role will be conducting a needs assessment to better understand the gaps that exist around financial literacy and will use this feedback to develop trainings to address how to best educate clients on the US banking and credit system to increase their self-sufficiency.
