Stand Up For Salem Business Development VISTA

Serve and learn in historical Salem New Jersey! Salem, New Jersey is an all rural county located in the southwest corner of the state just a stone's throw from Delaware. Incorporated by Quakers in 1692, Salem City is rich in Revolutionary War history and was an important part of the Underground Railroad. Once a thriving agricultural and manufacturing community, the area has had economic downturns as these industries declined. Stand Up For Salem Inc. is a small community development corporation and designated Main Street organization that works to revitalize the city's distressed neighborhoods and develop small businesses in the community. Our goal is for AmeriCorps VISTA's to play an integral role in the revitalization of the city. During the year of service with Stand Up For Salem, VISTA members will gain insight into a variety of different neighborhood initiatives including the development of the organization and gain hands on experience in community development. Stand Up For Salem will also assist members in obtaining low cost living arrangements if needed. In your off time you can enjoy visiting the rodeo at Cowtown, viewing local wildlife at one of our many parks or enjoying the art scene.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
