Project Manager (2 Positions)
Posted by Penn Center for Community Health Workers on June 22, 2021
About the organization: Penn Center for Community Health Workers is a national center of excellence focused on achieving health equity through effective, sustainable community health worker (CHW) programs. We have developed IMPaCT, a nationally-recognized, evidenced-based community health worker model that has served more than 13,000 Philadelphians. CHWs share life experience with the people they support and provide community-based social care, advocacy and navigation to those made disadvantaged due to race and socioeconomic position. In addition to our work in Philadelphia, we work with organizations across the country to help them launch and scale effective CHW programs, and partner with other organizations to shape local, state, and federal policies that impact the communities we serve and the CHW workforce. We are part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, which provides competitive salaries and exceptional benefits, including an annual tuition benefit.
About the position: To support our goals in helping to dismantle structures and systems that create injustice and inequity, we have expanded leadership opportunities within our organization. We are hiring two individuals, each of whom will lead a team of community health workers to improve health in marginalized communities through one-to-one patient relationships and manage a strategic portfolio within our organization. One program manager will lead our policy initiatives and the other will focus on community engagement and communications.
