ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY, MISSION & VISION

Payroll Type: ​Exempt Supervisory:​ Yes Initiated/Updated: ​7/20/2020

Regular Hours:​ 30-40 hours per week Salary Range: ​Firm at​ ​$70,000 annually Position Available:​ August 3, 2020

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.

POSITION SUMMARY, ADULT PROGRAMS & TRAINING PROGRAM

The Associate Director of Adult Programs & Training oversees and supervises the Adult Program and Training Program. These include the Senior (Elder/Older Adult) Program, HIV Prevention Program, Training Program, and social and support groups. This position is responsible for supervising these 2 Adult and 1 Training program staff and assuring that volunteers for these programs receive adequate orientation, supervision and recognition, with the support of the Volunteer Coordinator and managerial staff. The Associate Director of Adult Programs & Training is part of the Senior Management team along with the Associate Director of Clinical Services, Associate Director of Youth Programs & Housing, and the Executive Director.

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’. Our Cultural Humility Series comprises ‘Growing Awareness & Recognizing Positionality’, ‘Exploring Intersectionality & Impact’, and ‘Interrupting the Cycle of Oppression & Embracing Liberation’.​ We also devise panels and keynote speakers centered around folx’ journeys with social justice sharing stories and discussions of resistance, resilience, celebration, importance of visibility and representation, and call to action and advocacy. We will also be launching this fall and winter subscriptions for ongoing professional development groups, consultation, and digital curriculum for sale through our website.
