We're Hiring a Peer Coach!

You are here

The Oregon School-Based Health Alliance (OSBHA) is looking to add a Peer Coach to our team. We’d love to talk with you if you are excited about empowering youth leaders, youth-adult partnerships, and health equity. The Peer Coach provides leadership, mentorship, and operational support to the OSBHA Student Health Advocates.

The Student Health Advocates are a group of 15 young people aged 14-22 in the Portland metro area. Student Health Advocates work with OSBHA for at least one school year. Members promote the value of school-based health centers and services across Oregon by planning statewide events, speaking publicly about the importance of health equity and access, and training healthcare providers on how to provide youth-friendly healthcare.

The Peer Coach will be supervised by the Youth-Adult Partnership Manager and will work closely with the Youth Programs Coordinator to support and provide structure to the Student Health Advocate group.

Our organization’s vision is for all children and youth to be healthy, learning, and thriving; we cannot achieve this vision until systemic racism, anti-blackness, and white supremacy have been dismantled. OSBHA has a goal to actively engage in practices that redistribute, share, and build power to change systems of inequity. The Peer Coach should have an awareness of how racism and anti-Blackness harm us all, and a commitment to supporting youth with oppressed identities.

This role is for someone between the age of 18-24 who has experience working with a group that addresses youth health, youth empowerment, and/or social justice issues, either as a participant or leader. It's a 12-month hourly staff position that pays $19.00 an hour for 10 hours a week. Applications are due Wednesday, June 24 at 6pm. For more info and application instructions, please click here.
