Full Job Description

Regional Program Coordinator

at HealthCorps

Tuscon, AZ

Are you interested in serving your community and empowering the next generation of healthy leaders? HealthCorps and our mission to improve the lives of youth both mentally and physically provides you the opportunity to do just that.

Who We Are

We’re HealthCorps – a national non-profit organization committed to improving lives by addressing health inequities in communities through programming that includes innovative and engaging experiences for teens in education, leadership, and service learning. We empower teens by encouraging them to become change agents within their families, schools and neighborhoods. Our program is grounded in the understanding that limited access to health education can lead to a lifetime of social, emotional and physical challenges.

Our values drive the work we do here at HealthCorps; we’re mission obsessed, have an entrepreneurial mindset, value that our people are our power, know that teamwork makes the dream work and believe that there is empowerment in diversity, both within our teams as well as the communities we serve.

Where You Fit In

We’re looking for a creative, friendly, self-starter who will implement an innovative community-wide wellness program in Maricopa County, that empowers teens to make healthier choices for themselves and their families. You’ll serve as a catalyst for sustainable change, promoting improved health and wellness within schools and the broader communities.

As a Regional Program Coordinator you will support a team of Regional Program Managers as they train, deploy and supervise near-peer college mentors from area universities to help deliver HealthCorps’ proven program in local middle schools. The program consists of health promoting events including our Teens Make Health Happen Club, health promoting campus activities, and community events. You will engage current and potential community stakeholders, including school, district, and university staff as well as strategic program partners, student wellness officers, and local alumni to develop a network of individuals and organizations with the common goal of improving the health and wellness of the community.

You will support and help contribute to social media platforms (Instagram, TikTok, etc.) as well as stakeholder reports and communications that allow your students to shine.  
  • Commit to the HealthCorps Mission. You will prioritize health and wellness daily and ultimately work to ensure that health is accessible for all. Your spark to serve will leave a lasting, positive impact on your community.
