Program Coordinator, Partner Engagement

Join a national organization committed to advancing a movement to race equity and health justice.

Community Catalyst is a leading non-profit national health advocacy organization dedicated to advancing a movement for health equity and justice. We partner with local, state and national advocates to leverage and build power so all people can influence decisions that affect their health. Health systems will not be accountable to people without a fully engaged and organized community voice. That’s why we work every day to ensure people’s interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and health care are made: in communities, state houses and on Capitol Hill. Learn more about our vision for the future in our five-year strategic plan.

 

POSITION SUMMARY

The Program Coordinator will provide administrative and programmatic support to the Partner Engagement team. Community Catalyst recently concluded a significant five-year strategic planning process. The plan pushes the organization to focus its work on race equity and health justice, long-term vision setting, and power building. Building on the foundation of two decades of work with partner organizations, the strategic plan envisions a new chapter for Community Catalyst’s efforts to build strategic relationships, alliances, and collaboration with local, state, and national organizations. This work will span partners who we have worked with Community Catalyst for years to partners who the organization is only beginning to engage with to partners who will be entirely new.

The Program Coordinator will have the ability to work independently on projects and must be able to work under pressure at times to handle a wide variety of activities (e.g., event planning, reports, policy and material production) and confidential matters with discretion. The successful candidate is someone who can assess priorities on the go, “manage up,” communicate directly, respond to time sensitive needs with poise, and work efficiently and effectively in a team atmosphere.

This position is included in a collective bargaining unit represented by a staff union, Community Catalyst United, and specific employment terms may be subject to a future Collective Bargaining Agreement

 

Supervision: The Program Coordinator is supervised by the Project Manager, with support from the Director Partner Engagement.
