Position Description: 

Position Title: Youth Programs Coordinator

Classification: Full time, 40 hours/week, non-exempt

Compensation: $22/hour

Reports to: Youth-Adult Partnership Manager

Summary: The Oregon School-Based Health Alliance (OSBHA) is looking to add a new Youth Programs Coordinator to our team. We’d love to talk with you if you are excited about empowering youth leaders, youth-adult partnerships, and health equity. The Youth Programs Coordinator oversees the success of the OSBHA Student Health Advocates and supports youth advocates throughout Oregon in their work to create youth-friendly school-based health services and systems.

Our organization’s vision is for all children and youth to be healthy, learning, and thriving; we cannot achieve this vision until systemic racism, anti-blackness, and white supremacy have been dismantled. OSBHA has a goal to actively engage in practices that redistribute, share, and build power to change systems of inequity. The Peer Coach should have an awareness of how racism and anti-Blackness harm us all, and a commitment to supporting youth with oppressed identities.

How you’ll spend your time:

  • Oversee the OSBHA Student Health Advocate group. Recruit and retain members. Build relationships that empower youth in the program. Lead the scheduling and planning of Student Health Advocate meetings and events
  • Co-design, coordinate, and host trainings and statewide events with youth advocates focused on youth-friendly health services, healthy youth relationships and sexual health, mental health, trauma-informed care, and other health topics
  • Lead youth engagement in OSBHA projects and work with the Youth-Adult Partnership Manager to implement contracted statewide youth engagement projects
  • Collaborate with staff and youth to implement policy and procedure changes that support youth-adult partnerships at OSBHA and across the state of Oregon
  • Build and cultivate relationships with other youth-serving programs across Oregon, and maintain and support a model for diverse representation in OSBHA’s work with young people
  • Mentor OSBHA’s Peer Coach

 

What you are great at: 

  • You love empowering youth leaders and putting positive youth development into practice
  • You are excited about promoting equitable, youth-friendly health services
  • You are passionate about community organizing with youth who have diverse identities and lived experiences
  • You are committed to actively building relationships and communicating with people from diverse backgrounds
  • You are detail-oriented and make sure that your work is thorough and organized
  • You love a deadline and pulling programs together
  • You are motivated and driven. You look for new challenges without waiting to be asked and you take ownership of your time to make a big impact
  • You enjoy working solo as well as with team members and community partners
  • You communicate clearly across a variety of platforms (email, phone, text, video calls, in-person)
  • You have experience with or are interested in learning about human-centered design and equitable facilitation methods

Perks:

  • A chance to work with a dynamic and passionate team of youth and adults
  • Flexible schedule
  • Paid vacation and sick days
  • Medical and dental insurance with no premium for employee
  • We’ll match your retirement savings for up to 3% of your pay (after working with us for 90 days)
  • Healthcare flexible spending account (you can set aside wages pre-tax to pay for eligible medical expenses) and dependent care savings account (if you have dependents, you can set aside wages pre-tax to pay for eligible dependent care services, for example, daycare)
  • Mileage reimbursement for off-site travel

OSBHA employees have developed a set of team values that define how we strive to accomplish our work and interact with each other.

  • Well-being: We support self-care and a balanced life by respecting one another’s assessment of limits and boundaries and recognize that health and well-being looks different for everyone. We celebrate successes and hold space during challenges. 
  • Curiosity & Innovation: We have a willingness to question existing systems/processes/ structures, push past status quo, and engage in practices that allow for creative ways forward.
  • Discomfort: We welcome discomfort around examining our own beliefs and knowledge of oppression and white supremacy in order to allow for growth. As a team and as individuals we will explore and support each other as we work, learn, and evolve.
  • Accountability: We accept responsibility for our actions, follow-through with commitments, ask for help or propose revised plans when needed, and act with transparency and clarity.
  • Integrity: We are honest and authentic with self and others, true to our convictions, and our actions match our words.
  • Trust: We commit to building a culture where we can trust in each other’s abilities and intentions, and be vulnerable enough to give and receive honest feedback.
  • Collaboration: We work together towards our individual and collective goals and support each other by offering knowledge and skills, and flexing work flows and responsibilities as feasible.

Work Environment: This is a partial-remote position. Our employees are currently working from home because of COVID-19—once we are on the other side of COVID, you can expect to spend approximately 70% of your time working remotely, and 30% of your time working at the OSBHA office (this could change depending on workflow). We have an office space with two desks that are shared between all of our employees, along with two conference rooms. OSBHA will provide you with a laptop that you can bring home to use for work. Accommodations can be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.
