Position Description: ​Associate Director of Adult Programs & Training

The Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County (Rainbow) ​was founded in 1995 to serve the well-being of the LGBTQI+ Community in Contra Costa County.​ Founders wanted to develop programs to reduce isolation of LGBTQI+ people and provide a space for community development. ​Rainbow continues to provide a safe and welcoming place building community among LGBTQI+ persons and our allies through social programs, support groups, clinical services, training, special events, and emergency programs.

Rainbow ​builds community builds community and promotes well-being among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Intersex (LGBTQI+) persons and our allies though social opportunities, health & wellness services, and awareness programs.

Rainbow envisions a society that embraces acceptance, safety and equality for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. As Rainbow transcends its vision from inclusive to expansive, we will be able to more effectively represent by centering and reaching a wider scope of People of Color, intersectional, and marginalized LGBTQI+ identities. We understand that “inclusion”, which in meaning and implementation, holds and maintains a power differential, whether or not intentionally set. With this Associate Director of Adult Programs & Training position we look to center folx that need access to adult support and services within our communities.

ORGANIZATION CULTURE

Our services are based upon a three-tier model of interventions that are designed to reduce isolation, identify individuals in need of direct support, and increase resiliency of our community members – all while building skills needed to cope with the impact of living in a heteronormative and often rejecting dominant culture. Our work is also grounded within a vision of creating a society that embraces acceptance for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions.

We are dedicated to the development of Rainbow as a learning organization where board, staff, volunteers and those we serve can join together in co-creation of a culture that truly demonstrates the expression of our mission to build community and promote well-being. We are committed to learning together, sharing our knowledge, empowering each other and creating an organization that supports the development of compassionate, reflective, talented, innovative, and dedicated employees, interns, and volunteers.

Rainbow’s Adult Programs​ centers intersectional LGBTQI+ individuals and are a significant component of our health and wellness support services. We provide culturally expansive case management, education, topic-based discussions, events, and various peer and social support groups focused around “coming out”, sexuality, HIV status, and Parents/Guardians of LGBTQI+ and Gender

Non-Conforming youth, to name a few. The programming’s aim is to increase education, resiliency, support, by building a healthy, flourishing, thriving and vibrant Contra Costa County community.

Our Adult Programming includes the ​Senior Program​ which provides safe spaces for LGBTQI+ elders/older adults to gather, socialize, and create a supportive community. LGBTQI+ seniors are more likely than their straight peers to be isolated, so we aim to increase support, help address internalized homophobia, transphobia and shame, ensuring seniors have access to a supportive network of peers. Activities have included senior lunches, social groups, youth/senior events, and social outings.

Our ​HIV Prevention Program​ and Services include Rapid Testing HIV clinics, safer sex information and supplies, and support groups. Rainbow also provides in-depth PrEP HIV medication reviews with clients and offers a wraparound support system for people living with HIV and AIDS. In partnership with the Contra Costa HIV/ AIDS & STI Program, Rainbow is piloting a 3-Site testing project (collecting throat swabs, anal swabs, and urine from MSM clients) to test for chlamydia and gonorrhea. In year one, about 200 people were tested for HIV/AIDS.

Our ​Training Program​ reaches adults who work with youth and/or adults, across sectors, within Contra Costa County, the Bay Area, California, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Our interactive, educational workshops, training, and presentations have been in-person and are presently virtual for mental health providers, schools, faith-based organizations, juvenile justice, probation, community-based organizations, residential and/or treatment programs, corporate companies, and community groups. Topix include ​Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Expression (SOGIE): LGBTQI+ Fluency and Allyship Series comprising of ‘Breaking Through the Binary’, ‘Dimensions, Impact, and Dialogue’, and ‘Affirming & Expansive Approaches’.

Name: Brian Davis, Project Director

Link to posting: https://www.indeed.com/job/community-health-outreach-worker-0926afaaef1d2ec2

Job Description

Remote work is temporarily available due to COVID-19.

LGBTQ Minus Tobacco is a new fiscally sponsored project of the San Francisco Public Health Foundation funded by a five-year grant from the California Department of Public Health’s Tobacco Control Program.

LGBTQ Minus Tobacco will perform policy work with the long-term objective of bringing an end to tobacco product use and secondhand exposure within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and other related communities. The LGBTQ+ population uses tobacco products at a 50% higher rate than the general population. This is primarily due to homophobia and transphobia contributing to a more stressful environment among members of these communities. Tobacco kills 480,000 people a year in the United States.

This work will primarily be performed in four Bay Area cities: Concord, Oakland, San Francisco and Vallejo; and will be focused upon raising awareness of policies that have been proven effective at reducing tobacco product use and secondhand exposure within vulnerable populations, such as requiring a minimum price for tobacco products sold at stores and smoke-free environments within traditional LGBTQ+ settings.

Job Description

Lambda Legal’s Board of Directors guides the work of the organization by setting its strategic direction, evaluating its CEO and monitoring the CEO’s progress towards the fulfillment of the organization’s strategic goals, setting and monitoring the organization’s budget, and helping secure the financial resources the organization needs to carry out its work. Members come from a variety of professional backgrounds as well as from across the nation and reflect the diversity of the communities Lambda Legal serves. Members attend three in-person meetings a year as well as one virtual one, and agree to the following roles: 

  1. Advancement: Members seek to identify and secure sources of financial support to help Lambda Legal advance its work, and each member agrees to fulfill a $25,000 annual “give-get” for the organization. Members have an assigned development staffer who will work with them to develop a plan to fulfill their “give-get” obligation and support them in their efforts to do so throughout the course of the year. 
  2. Advice: Members leverage their own professional expertise as well as that of their networks to bring important perspectives and skills to help advance Lambda Legal’s work. 
  3. Ambassadorship: Members seek to represent Lambda in the community to raise its visibility. 

Lambda Legal’s Board is very much a “hands-on” board where members work actively with each other and with staff to help the organization fulfill its mission. Each member serves on at least one committee (Administrations & Finance, Audit, Development, Diversity & Inclusion, Investment, Nominating, and Strategic Planning), with select other members serving on an Executive Committee which leads the Board under the guidance of its Chair, John Stafstrom of Bridgeport, Connecticut. 

Opportunity 

For more than 45 years, Lambda Legal has been leading the march toward full lived equality for LGBTQ+ people and everyone living with HIV. Throughout its history, but most profoundly today, the hard-fought progress that Lambda Legal has made is being eroded by powerful and well-resourced foes. At a critical time in history, this is an extraordinary opportunity to join the effort to defend and continue the expansion of rights for LGBTQ+ people and everyone living with HIV.
