An exciting opportunity awaits you to build a Culture of Health in our nation. Serving as key members of the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps (CHR&R) team, we are seeking seven Community Coaches to join the Roadmaps to Health Action Center team. While the rest of the Action Center and CHR&R team are based in Madison, we are looking to recruit coaches who will be based in other areas of the country, including the Northeast, New Jersey, South and West.
The Regional Community Coaches represent an expansion of the Action Center team on this national project. Community coaching builds capacity in local communities to advance work addressing the multiple factors that influence health. The primary responsibility for the Regional Community Coaches will be guiding communities who have indicated a readiness to move forward in their journey toward better health for all, using the RWJF Culture of Health Prize criteria as a guidepost and the tools and resources in the Roadmaps to Health Action Center.
The Regional Coaches are full-time positions hired by NNPHI and assigned to work for the CHR&R program. The Regional Coaches will report to the Action Center. Travel throughout the US will be required.
NNPHI maintains offices in Washington, DC and New Orleans, Louisiana. Additional staff, consultants, members, and partners support NNPHI’s mission from several locations throughout the United States. The Regional Community Coaches will work remotely across the country to ensure communities have access to coaching and support. Regional Community Coaches may work from their own home offices; alternately, an opportunity for office-share through a member institute or a collaborative work space may be available, depending on location. We are particularly interested in candidates who are located in the Northeast, New Jersey, South and West.
The Regional Community Coaches will work independently and collaboratively with the CHR&R team to coach individuals and teams in communities that have indicated a readiness to move forward in their journey toward better health for all.
