Description

In 2018, the Sisters Country Vision project engaged the people of Sisters Country in a lively conversation about the future of the place we call home. Led by NXT Consulting and a project management team that included the City of Sisters, Deschutes County, the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC), and Citizens 4 Community, the vision team conducted more than 80 interviews, hosted 13 community meetings across the region, fielded two online community surveys, held four community forums on topics of vital importance to our future, and ultimately developed a Vision Action Plan with 20 strategies prioritized by the community and a series of action steps to bring the community\'s vision to life. The Sisters Country Vision was formally adopted by the Sisters City Council and other partners in early 2019.  

In July 2019, the Vision Implementation Team (VIT) was formed, with the goal of helping to provide oversight, coordinate implementation and track progress, and keep the broader community informed and engaged in the project. The VIT includes representatives from local government, agencies, non-profits, and community members, and includes a standing seat for a Sisters \"youth\". Last year, this seat was filled by a Sisters High School student volunteer. For year 2, we are offering a formal internship and hope to have an even more engaged youth member ready to dig into the work. The VIT Youth Representative will work with the Vision Coordinator and the other VIT members to:

- Coordinate messaging to the broader public and develop strategies to get the word out consistently and get more people engaged in Vision Projects (could include helping with social media, community events, etc.)

- Participate in local subcommittee(s) of your choice, to work \"on the ground\" on one or more Vision Strategies. Bring your ideas and vision to these working groups to make a difference or help launch a new group! Current subcommittees include: Diversity & Inclusion, Community Center, Events...

- Attend VIT meetings every other month, usually held in the late afternoons or evenings. Participate in meetings actively and bring your ideas to share! 

- Attend community meetings, City Council Meetings or other opportunities to network and share about the Vision.

Educational Aspect

Learn about community development on the ground, engage with local leaders, participate in shaping the future of Sisters Country, and gain valuable experience with collaboration at the local level. You'll also hone your public speaking, relationship-building, event coordination, and outreach skills. Work with a great team to make change in your community over the course of year! 

Further Requirements

It should be noted that this is a full year internship.
