Maria Groth - Community Construction VISTA
Hi! My name is Maria Groth and I am working with Community Action Duluth and the Community Construction program as an AmeriCorps Volunteer in Service to America (VISTA) member.
The goals of my project are to refine the Community Construction labor tracking system so that it can more adequately and effectively be used to predict future project lead times, research and analyze alternate materials to be used on our projects that are more sustainable while still cost effective, and to begin developing a framework for a life-cycle carbon accounting system so the program can accurately assess the implications of their work and materials over the lifetime of the rehabilitated property. I have also been assisting with researching and writing grant proposals to help finance the construction program.
Accepting this opportunity has allowed me to combine my passions for economics, equity, the environment, and sustainability all into one, and it keeps me interested and invested every day.
If you have any questions for / about me, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
