Position Title:   Prevention Educator + Our Music My Body Campaign Coordinator (Northside)

Reports to:        Director of Education & Training

Salary Range:   $44,000 - $46,000, commensurate with experience

ORGANIZATIONAL BACKGROUND

Resilience is an independent, not‐for‐profit organization dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non‐judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group counseling, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Resilience provides public education and institutional advocacy in order to improve the treatment of sexual assault survivors and to effect positive change in policies and public attitudes toward sexual assault. Established in 1974, Resilience now serves over 2000 survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones annually through our main office in downtown Chicago and our community‐based offices in Austin, Ravenswood, and on the Stroger Hospital campus.


GENERAL ROLE DESCRIPTION

The Northside Prevention Educator + Our Music My Body (OMMB) Campaign Coordinator is responsible for providing sexual violence prevention and activism directed toward social change and primary prevention of sexual violence. Strategies include sexual violence public awareness, youth focused prevention education, professional training services for adults as well as planning and executing community mobilization and social justice activism campaigns such as OMMB (see below). Resilience prevention work requires cultural competency that reflects a feminist, victim-centered analysis of the problem of sexual violence and recognizes the system of privilege within our culture, the impact of oppression and the intersections of oppressions in survivor identities and communities.


Our Music My Body is a campaign led by Resilience to raise awareness about sexual harassment in the music scene.  The Northside Prevention Educator + Our Music My Body Campaign Coordinator is responsible for managing the OMMB campaign’s partnerships with music venues and festivals; facilitating prevention education for music workers and fans; recruiting, training and managing OMMB volunteers; and working with the Director of Education and Training to fulfill the OMMB strategic plan. This position also supervises an OMMB intern.
