Public Health Advocates (PHAdvocates) brings a health and equity lens to some of the most important issues of our day. We have two decades of successful state and local campaign experience focusing on prevention and challenging the social, political, and economic systems that perpetuate racial, economic and health disparities. Over the past 20 years, PHAdvocates has helped 200 California cities enact more than 600 local policies. At the state level, we led the campaigns to get soda and junk food out of public schools, fund elementary school physical education, require that restaurants put calorie information on their menus, and fund statewide diabetes prevention.
PHAdvocates seeks a dynamic leader who can build upon the current successes of our FOR (Faces of Resilience) project to forge a path forward for Public Health Advocates in the City of Stockton, and school districts that serve Stockton youth. Strong applicants will have a track record of staff supervision, team building, program and grant development. Knowledge of the intersection of health and trauma is a plus.
Faces of Resilience is a youth leadership development program funded by San Joaquin Valley Health Fund, by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and Kaiser Permanente. The project serves youth of color in the Stockton Community with an emphasis on African American youth development. FOR’s primary goal is to build the capacity of young people so they can learn the basic tenants of policy and systems change and their relationship to health. The project focuses on trauma and resilience as well as racial equity issues in Stockton’s medical and educational systems. FOR staff pride themselves on building authentic and impactful relationships with young people which has been proven to have a positive influence in the quality of work and commitment to change.
The Program Manager oversees the operations of Faces of Resilience, supervises staff, and leads the development and implementation of communication, evaluation, and community action plans. The Program Manager reports to the Director of Equity Justice and will assist the Director with the preparation of funding proposals to expand current and new program opportunities.
