As the domestic arm of the global organization of Mercy Corps, Mercy Corps Northwest is focused on creating innovative solutions to tough local challenges, including limited access to finance, recidivism, structural inequality and the intergenerational cycle of poverty. As a VISTA with the Mercy Corps Northwest (MCNW) Women’s Business Center COVID-Response Team, you will help develop the Online Education Project, which will enhance MCNW’s capacity to support COVID-impacted, economically disadvantaged small business owners through expanded outreach and development of education assets. The VISTA will pilot a customized online education platform, develop expanded online curriculum, create connections with rural development organizations and other partners, and provide recommendations for future expansion of online offerings to support underserved entrepreneurs.
