Americorps Richmond , VA 23234

Posted 11 months ago

Enrichmond has been working with income challenged neighborhoods our entire 27 year history. We currently act as fiscal agent to over 110 community-based volunteer groups throughout the City of Richmond.

We assist these Friends/Partner groups in trying to improve neighborhood parks and public spaces, activate youth, and enhance local environmental protections and conservation efforts. The success of these groups is our success. Our AmeriCorps VISTA team will build on our long history of supporting neighborhoods long neglected and in need of assistance.

The work we are proposing will not only set the foundation for a stronger support infrastructure it will: Activate community groups to begin erasing long-term neglect and poor conditions from reduced funding; Serve the community's need to have safe and clean access to public spaces for environmental stewardship, public recreational use, and to experience history, helping to fulfill Enrichmond's goal to create clean, safe, publicly accessible open spaces; Serve the community's need to have organized, ongoing volunteer efforts to maintain their community public spaces, helping to fulfill Enrichmond's goal to engage our local community in volunteer efforts that support Richmond's open spaces. Our efforts will address this inequity head-on.
