Position Summary:

The Prevention Training and Systems Specialist (PTSS) will lead in piloting, customizing, and implementing prevention program training, research, and dissemination within the School and Community Prevention Program (SCPP). The SCPP develops, implements, and researches multiple network health and prevention programs. A key strategy we employ across programs is to train and support peer key opinion leaders (peer leaders) to be agents of change in their own social networks. As our program grows, we have an increasing need to integrate systems-level approaches into program training and peer leaders' prevention activities. Examples include extending peer leaders' communication and messaging activities into their families, to broaden program reach and impact. A critical need is for a prevention specialist with skills and comfort to apply systems level concepts across these program areas.

The SCPP requires a PTSS who has expertise in systems-level interventions, such as family and group interventions, and in training. Thus, we see this position as blending work in the front lines of school and community based prevention through training, as well as in training development and conceptualization.
