Denver Public Health is hiring three Peer Youth Advisors!

Denver Public Health is excited to announce staff openings for three part-time Peer Youth Advisors to join our Health Promotion Division Team! We believe that young people have an expertise in the lives of youth and youth culture and by having youth as a part of our team we will improve the programs and policies that affect the lives of ALL of Denver’s youth. The Youth Advisors will work in partnership with Denver Public Health staff, youth-serving organizations and other young people from the Denver community.

One Youth Advisor will be hired to work on each of these three projects: the Metro Healthy Beverage Partnership, Denver Healthy and Active Communities, and the Denver Community Tobacco Initiative.

We are seeking applicants who are comfortable using social media tools, know how to talk to and work with other diverse youth between the ages of 16-22, and who are reflective of or have experience working with Denver’s diverse communities.

Please share these opportunities with your networks, particularly those that reach young people between the ages of 16-22.

The full position descriptions and application instructions, as well as a one-page summary that can be printed and posted, 
are both available now on the DPH Youth Health website:
