Under the direction of the Director of Community Engagement, this position supports the mission of the organization by building community partnerships, facilitating community-wide health and safety initiatives, engaging in advocacy, and administering safe driving prevention work, as defined in the Communities That Care (CTC), Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) and Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) partnership scopes.
The primary role of a Community Mobilizer is to rally a variety of constituents around environmental change in Eagle County. Environmental change is long-term, systemic shifts in norms, policies, and behaviors across the entire population of the county. This includes people who are already motivated for change and also those who may need information and education that substantiates the need for change. A Community Mobilizer will have the skills necessary to facilitate a wide range of conversations, while supporting systemic changes at the core of each. Mountain Youth is invested in creating sustainable environmental changes that reduce youth access to and use of substances, promote positive health behaviors, address community norms and risk factors, enhance protective factors, elevate diverse community voices, and create equitable systems of support for youth and families.
