Community Block Party: Summer Safety
BLDG Memphis & Neighborhood Collaborative for Resilience
Community Engagement Coordinator
BLDG Memphis is a coalition of organizations and individuals who support the development and redevelopment of safe, healthy, and attractive neighborhoods throughout the Memphis region.
Early in 2017, Memphis was one of six regions selected to receive a three-year grant from the Strong, Prosperous, and Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC) initiative, which is designed to “amplify locally driven efforts to ensure that major new infrastructure investments lead to equitable, healthy opportunities for everyone.” (More information is available at sparcchub.org). SPARCC is supported by several national foundations and technical support organizations. Although the SPARCC initiative is focused on changes at
the regional level, the initial work locally is focused on the North Memphis area.
BLDG Memphis is administering the SPARCC grant on behalf of the Neighborhood Collaborative for Resilience (NCR), the body of residents, stakeholders, and neighborhood leaders working on behalf of the broader North Memphis community. The ideal candidate will have experience in communications, public relations, stakeholder and constituent relations, and event management, in particular working with grassroots organizations and community leaders. Ideally, the candidate can offer experience and/or in-depth knowledge and commitment to the promotion of an authentic community-driven design and implementation.
This position will report directly to the BLDG Memphis SPARCC Project Manager, and ultimately the executive director, but also will have accountability to the leadership of NCR.
The Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with various stakeholders to increase awareness of, participation in, and support for NCR. Working closely with the Project Manager and NCR leadership, the Coordinator will be responsible for planning and executing events and activities related to relevant programs and campaigns undertaken by the organization. A key aspect of the role will be working with volunteers. Other job tasks will include general communications duties and communications projects as assigned. Continue reading →
