Sullivan Renaissance Multicultural Outreach

February 26, 2018

[Ferndale, NY] The Sullivan Renaissance Multicultural Outreach Program embraces and celebrates the vibrancy of diverse communities throughout Sullivan County, extending an inclusive approach to all residents and seasonal visitors. The program encourages communities to showcase their valuable contributions as volunteers in Sullivan Renaissance’s beautification projects.

To foster community outreach, Sullivan Renaissance established an African-American Advisory Board, A Bilingual Advisory Committee and a Community Mitzvah Award Program. The Advisory Committees’ members donate their time to work alongside members of the community to inspire inclusion of youth, senior and those whose primary language is other than English. The Bilingual Advisory Committee serve as interpreters in Spanish, French, Greek, Italian and Yiddish.

Grants are also designed to underscore the value of community engagement. The Community Mitzvah Award engages seasonal residents in a beautification competition to raise the awareness about the importance of property appearance in the larger community. The deadline for the Community Mitzvah Award is March 1. Neighborhood Outreach Grants provide assistance to organizations and municipalities with beautification and community development projects in multicultural residential neighborhoods, as well as outreach to non-English speaking communities. Property Enhancement Grants are available for improving the exterior appearance of seasonal camps and bungalow colonies. Both the Neighborhood Outreach Grants and Property Enhancement Grants have rolling deadlines through October 1, 2018.

Sullivan Renaissance is seeking a Multicultural Program Manager to identify opportunities and implement initiatives that increase the participation of multicultural communities in Sullivan Renaissance’s grant programs. This position has a specific focus on outreach and efforts to revitalize neighborhoods in multicultural areas and to engage individuals in Sullivan Renaissance’s beautification and community development programs by removing language and other barriers, and building trust.

This is a full-time position with a salary commensurate with experience. For more information, call (845) 295-2445, or apply on Facebook @sullivanrenaissance.
