Global to Local – Director of Programs
Global to Local’s mission is to build on best practices from around the world to engage communities and institutions in a culture of health equity. We use innovative, holistic, and community-driven solutions to improve health outcomes for residents of South King County. Since launching in 2010, we’ve served more than 12,000 people in SeaTac and Tukwila.
Our organization is growing, and we are hiring our first-ever Director of Programs to oversee the strategic and operational management of our direct-service programs:
Community Health Workers – CHWs are trusted community members trained as health workers who operate outside of clinics to provide culturally relevant education, referrals, and social support for health behaviors. The application for CHWs is endless; from exercise classes to financial management training, community health workers adapt to the needs of their communities.
Connection Desk – Poor health outcomes in our communities are often caused by underlying social issues, but in a clinical setting doctors and nurses often don’t have the time or ability to address these issues. Connection Desks are physical spaces in primary care settings for people to get information and referrals to a wide variety of community and social service resources. These hubs bridge the gap between social and health services by connecting clients directly to services and resources that will better their health.
Mobile Health – Our Mobile Health program addresses chronic disease management through the use of a custom mobile phone app coupled with culturally-sensitive remote case management as part of a patient’s established care plan. The app can be customized for weight loss, smoking cessation, diabetes management, and more.
Leadership & Engagement – Trusted community members are trained as “Connectors” between local city government and under-represented communities. These leaders work directly with city staff to ensure that local government outreach and engagement efforts are equitable and inclusive.
Applications for this position will be accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, please submit a resume and cover letter to email@example.com. No phone calls please.
