Organization Summary

Rising Communities (RC) is a non-profit, community-based health education, advocacy and policy organization established in 1992 in response to the growing health and healthcare crisis. RC’s mission is to collectively build equitable systems. RC has been on the cutting edge of public policy and program development, working to strengthen community participation and inform state and local policies that: (1) improve community health and education to achieve optimal health and healthy lifestyles; (2) ensure equitable access to quality healthcare services; (3) provide universal access to quality healthcare coverage and (4) eliminate health disparities. RC engages members of impacted communities in program and policy development through a wide variety of community interventions and strategies as well as representation and leadership through the coalitions and collaborations convened. With a primary focus on South Los Angeles, RC works at the local, state and national level to improve the health of under-served and marginalized communities.

WeCanStopSTDsLA Overview

WeCanStopSTDsLA is a movement that brings together people and organizations who live, work, play, serve and worship in Los Angeles County to reduce the cases of STIs among youth and young adults in our communities. WeCanStopSTDsLA was launched in 2012 in South Los Angeles with support from the Department of Public Health, Division of HIV and STD Programs. WeCanStopSTDsLA is led by the Community Advisory Coalition (CAC), consisting of public health officials, community members, service providers, advocates and faith leaders and Coachman Moore & Associates, Inc. (CMA) which serves as the coalition’s backbone entity. Espousing a model of social justice based in a Collective Impact approach, WeCanStopSTDsLA seeks to reduce the number of STI cases by changing the narratives, systems, practices and cultures that negatively impact young people’s access to and utilization of appropriate, high-quality STI prevention, testing and treatment services.

Under funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CMA and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) are partnering with RC to deepen and expand the work of WeCanStopSTDsLA to achieve health equity for young women (inclusive of cis and trans women) of color across LA County with respect to STIs. Recognizing the need to engage more young women from the community and to ensure that their lived experiences drive the process of identifying and implementing solutions, this project engages young women 18-26 years old via a Community Advisory Board (CAB) and other means to identify sustainable interventions that will best address social determinants of health and prevent STIs in their communities.

Position Summary

The Project Manager will work seamlessly with CMA and CHLA to ensure project activities are designed and carried out to achieve program goals to address the social determinants of health which lead to the disproportionate rates of STIs among young women of color. In addition, the manager will ensure that the CAB runs equitably and effectively integrates the voices and authentic participation of young women of color.

Because this project is an expansion and deepening of WeCanStopSTDsLA’s current work, the Project Manager will hold a critical bridging function among current and new stakeholders. The Project Manager will report directly to CMA leadership for program implementation on behalf of WeCanStopSTDsLA. In addition, the Manager will work in close collaboration with other CMA staff, CHLA and community stakeholders from WeCanStopSTDsLA including partners at community-based organizations, public health workers, government officials, and others to achieve project goals.

Description of Job Duties and Responsibilities

  • Manage all aspects of the funded program to ensure that young women of color are identifying social determinants of health driving the high rate of STIs affecting their peers and are informing and driving solutions in collaboration with the WeCanStopSTDsLA movement to reduce STIs.
  • Support the development and implementation of the CDC grant interventions, action plan, evaluation.
  • Facilitate the goals, objectives, activities, and deliverables are carried out in accordance with the workplan and grant guidelines, specifications, timelines, reporting and budgets.
  • Coordinate the collaborative relationships among RC, CMA, CHLA, as well as with other WeCanStopSTDsLA stakeholders.
  • Supervise and work closely with the CAB Program Analyst to ensure that the CAB runs equitably and efficiently and appropriately reflects the target population of young cis and trans women of color.

Required Qualifications

  • At least 3-5 years of project management experience with federal, state or foundation funded public health or related projects.
  • At least 5 years’ experience working on social determinants of health and/or women’s issues with communities of color. Experience and/or strong working knowledge of STIs, sexual/reproductive health, LGBTQ health, women’s health, adolescent and young adult health, and/or health equity.
  • Demonstrated ability to provide staff supervision and mentorship.
  • Able to work remotely/virtually as well as on occasional evenings and/or weekends as necessary to accommodate the schedules of young people. Able to attend and coordinate in-person, local community events, as needed.
