Job Opportunity: Youth Advisor Applications Now Open!
We're excited to announce that Denver Public Health is now accepting applications for 3 part-time Youth Advisor positions!
Since 2015 Denver Public Health has employed Youth Advisors to provide expertise on and lead youth engagement efforts within Community Health Promotion programs. Armando Gonzalez, Sedona Allen, and LaPhonso Salas (pictured above) were the first Youth Advisors hired and worked on tobacco prevention, healthy beverage, and active living projects.
We're now seeking youth who are excited to support the Healthy Beverage Project, substance abuse prevention coalitions, and School Based Health Center outreach. The Youth Advisors will also engage with Youth Health Assessment follow-up activities, youth violence prevention, and occasionally consult on other department projects.
The most important qualifications are the abilities to work with diverse groups of young people throughout Denver and apply their own experiences as a young person to public health work (and we’ll help them with both!). Please share the job announcement with your networks and cast a wide net that includes a range of young Denver residents.
Details and application instructions are in the job announcement. Applications are due September 14.
