Monday, March 16, 2020The mission of AIDS Services of Austin (ASA) is to enhance the health and well-being of the community and people affected by HIV and AIDS. We recently established a patient-centered medical clinic providing life-affirming HIV, PrEP, primary care, and behavioral health services for at-risk persons in Central Texas. ASA services are located across three campuses in the greater Austin area. Our main campus houses the clinic, case management, insurance assistance, housing, food and nutrition services, and administrative services; the Jack Sansing Dental Clinic provides dental care to approximately 1,500 HIV-positive patients annually; and the Springdale location houses our Health Promotion programs that provide preventative and positive services for persons affected by HIV. For more than 32 years, ASA has provided a continuum of services to the greater Central Texas area. ASA is bolstering its Mpowerment program, and we're looking to add an Mpowerment Specialist to join our team. The Mpowerment Specialist is responsible for implementing a community-level, evidence-based intervention utilizing the Mpowerment prevention model for young gay, bisexual, transgender, and curious men between the ages of 18 and 44 in Austin. The Mpowerment Specialist is also responsible for facilitating volunteer participation, facilitating small and large group events, promoting The Q events, and conducting online and off-site outreach as needed. The Mpowerment Specialist uses print materials, social media, and face-to-face recruitment to promote Mpowerment program activities.read more
Monday, March 16, 2020Front Steps’ Community Engagement Manager leads volunteer management, in-kind donations, and community outreach programs. The Community Engagement Manager runs our volunteer program--we have some amazing volunteers who thrive on organization and appreciation. We are launching two new engagement efforts this year: a monthly Open House/Tour at the shelter at 7th and Neches and our Front Steps Ambassador Program—both to be led by the Community Engagement Manager. In every role, success is defined by communicating about the issues, the needs of our clients experiencing homelessness, and the work of our nonprofit--all to attract investment (time, talent, and/or treasure) from the community. Training and professional development opportunities will be provided. This isn't a "sit at a desk" position! The ideal candidate brings kindness, mad skills for scheduling, and the gift of making genuine connections.read more
