Vermont Afterschool is seeking dynamic, self-directed, organized, and team-oriented individuals to lead initiatives in youth resilience and community-led interventions that increase protective factors for youth through trauma-informed practices, community connections, out-of-school time activities, and family engagement.
1. Youth Resilience Coordinator. The Youth Resilience Coordinator will support and maintain a statewide network of facilitators to inform Vermont communities about how to help all children grow to become resilient through different ages and developmental phrases, ensuring that all have strong healthy brains, meaningful relationships, and supportive networks. Expected compensation level starts at $25/hour and depends on experience and qualifications.
2. Substance Misuse Prevention VISTA. This is an opportunity to gain experience connecting public health and youth development concepts to actual project strategies being implemented on the ground and in community. Through this project, the AmeriCorps VISTA will gain practical experience working with communities, families, and youth services providers; facilitating meetings and developing workshops; and building communication, evaluation, and writing skills.
These are excellent opportunities to join our strong, nimble, and highly effective team at Vermont Afterschool.
