ABOUT: 

Lake County Build a Generation (LCBAG) is building a movement for health and well-being in Lake County. We bring community members together to work on issues that matter most to all of us, such as food, housing, and health care. Over the last two decades, we have coordinated many community-wide efforts to improve community health and well-being, from school playground renovations to community racial equity trainings. This past November, LCBAG’s work was recognized nationally when the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) awarded Lake County a national “Culture of Health Prize.” In its award statement, RWJF cited many initiatives Lake County Build a Generation had led or supported. We believe: • Health is more than health care: We believe many factors influence our health, including housing, transportation, education, or access to healthy food and physical activity. • Inequity is real: Living a healthy life is more easily accessible for some people than it is for others because of the environment in which they live. • Inequity is systemic: Shortcomings at the systems-level aren’t the fault of any individual—they stem from the distribution of wealth and power that has been perpetuated over decades. Where we live impacts more than just our access to healthy food, it also dictates how much residents pay for basic needs and services. • Change is possible. We have the ability to change the way we approach health by changing what doesn’t work in our community and identifying what does. By engaging a diverse group of Lake County residents in community change, we will ensure that a healthy life is accessible to all Lake County residents, regardless of who they are or how much they make. Lake County Build a Generation is located in Lake County, Colorado, a small, rural community at the base of Colorado’s two tallest mountains. Lake County provides access to residents and tourists alike to skiing, hunting, fishing, hiking ,camping, and other outdoor activities.

Duties and Responsibilities: 

Major responsibilities include: • Identifying and implementing key fundraising activities from our fund development plan to pilot in our first year as a nonprofit. • Supporting staff and board members in developing their fundraising capacity. • Supporting the creation and implementation of a board development plan. • Working with board members to develop and implement an ongoing board development plan. • Support the development or improvement of key agency systems and structures, in order to make Lake County Build a Generation a more efficient and effective organization—as well as to improve staff satisfaction.

Requirements:

  • Car recommended
  • College graduate

Working conditions: 40 hour work weeks

Internship Positions

CRC is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Academic Year Internship Program. See below for the descriptions and instructions on how to apply.

We envision a Colorado where human service nonprofits are actively engaged in nonpartisan advocacy and civic engagement. We strive towards a state in which the political power and influence of the nonprofit sector is strengthened. We seek to empower and train marginalized communities to have a voice about the policy decisions that affect them most. We envision the individual power of people combined with the collective power of the sector, to help create more healthy and just communities for all.

Community Resource Center’s mission is to create opportunities, tools and strategies to develop nonprofits and community groups to strengthen Colorado. We provide a continuum of services throughout the entire state of Colorado that develop leadership, convene communities and provide critical resources to nonprofits doing life-changing and life-saving work.

The Participation Project and Root Causes Network are programs of Community Resource Center (CRC). The Participation Project (PP) provides guidance, training, and support to human service nonprofits in their nonpartisan civic engagement efforts. The PP has grown into a network of more than 40 service providers statewide who together serve nearly one million low-income Coloradans. All populations represented are low-income, and many come from other traditionally marginalized communities, including communities of color, immigrants and refugees, LBGTQ+ communities, and single mothers. Through this program, the Participation Project provides the necessary support for human service nonprofits to offer nonpartisan voter engagement efforts to their clients and communities through voter registration, Pledge to Vote, and Get Out the Vote activities

“Many of the individuals who come to Denver Urban Ministries for services feel forgotten and abandoned by their communities, and by their leaders and decision-makers. Registering to vote is the most basic and simple way to make your voice heard and share your opinions. By voting you say I’m here, I exist and I matter.”
– PP Partner Agency

The Root Causes Network provides a permanent infrastructure to build the capacity of service providers to advance inclusive and community-centered policy. The Network creates formal and ongoing space for members to convene, and advance their skills and knowledge. When mobilized, nonprofits play a vital role in our state’s political and policy landscape. Nonpartisan efforts to engage those most directly impacted by policy decisions garner better policy outcomes, improved client outcomes, and a more effective nonprofit sector in advocating on behalf of communities in need of a political voice.
