OVERVIEW OF POSITION

2.    Defining and communicating project objectives to all stakeholders that are clear, useful and attainable.

3.    Managing the delivery of project requirements like community engagement and support, information delivery, agreements and material development, and support in workforce pathway design or technology needed to accomplish project objectives.

4.    Support the development of careers in the green economy by supporting community partners training programs, certifications, and recruitment from underrepresented communities.

The program coordinator will report to Emerald Cities East Bay - Oakland Director and is responsible for day-to-day needs in handling aspects of the local site’s program objectives and goals. The ability to adapt to the various internal procedures of the client and to form close links with the ECC national staff, local site directors and current program partners is essential in ensuring that the key issues of cost, time, quality and above all, stakeholder satisfaction, is realized.

Anchors in Resilient Communities (ARC) initiative:

 

This is the primary program initiative co-convened between Emerald Cities SF Bay Area - East Bay and Health Care Without Harm. This initiative began in 2014 with the building of a local table that included funders, anchors (Kaiser, Dignity, UC Berkeley) and community partners across the East Bay and San Francisco. The research report, lead by The Democracy Collaborative, estimated $6.8 Billion in procurement spend by Eds and Meds in the region. 

 

ARC’s mission is

To address the social (both economic and environmental) determinants of health by leveraging the assets and capacities of Bay Area anchor institutions and community-based partners, with a focus on expanding community wealth and ownership, improving health outcomes, and strengthening the capacity of communities of color and low and moderate-income residents to be resilient in the face of climate and economic disruption (*housing displacement, lack of transit).

 

ARC is a multi-sector community-based partnership that coordinates the purchasing power and collective investment of the region’s anchor institutions to improve health and generate wealth through community participation in:

1) a vibrant, localized food system and economy,

2) green infrastructure and construction and

3) green social enterprises.
