Strategic Consultant (Contract Position), Reach Out & Read

Posted by Reach Out & Read on August 22, 2023

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer (and collaborating closely with the ROR National Development, ROR National Program Operations, and ROR Greater Philadelphia teams), the Strategic Consultant has a unique opportunity to help shape the future direction of Reach Out and Read (ROR) in Pennsylvania. ROR has been implemented in Pennsylvania since 1996, with the flagship site at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Primary Care Centers paving the way for future expansion of the program across the state. Reach Out and Read now serves children at 252 clinical locations in the state. ROR sites range from small community clinics to large Health Systems offices and serve a diverse population across the state, primarily targeted at serving children and families in high-need areas.

Reach Out and Read in Pennsylvania is currently supported through a number of important stakeholders, and there is ample opportunity for strengthening and building upon these existing efforts. The ROR Greater Philadelphia (RORGP) affiliate was formed in 2002 through a grant from the Knight Foundation to expand ROR to the clinics run by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. The number of sites in RORGP has grown to over 80 in the ensuing years. Significant local efforts outside of this Affiliate have also bolstered the presence of ROR in PA, including a developed network of almost 20 sites in the Lancaster County region supported and sites in the Harrisburg/York region of PA who operate with the support of community partners in the region. Many primary care offices in the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) primary care network are well-established ROR sites.
