ICADV is expanding our prevention team with a full-time Prevention Specialist to implement violence prevention strategies with priority populations. The Prevention Specialist will collaborate with the Coalition’s prevention team and external partners to support the implementation of the CDC funded DELTA FOCUS and Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) programs to prevent intimate partner and sexual violence. A Master’s Degree in public health, social work or a related field is strongly preferred for this position.
A successful candidate for this position will have prior experience, either personal or professional, working with individuals with developmental disabilities (self-advocates). In addition, a successful candidate for this position must have a solid understanding of the public health model of primary prevention with emphasis on applying violence prevention strategies at the higher levels of the social ecological model. A successful candidate must demonstrate knowledge about the dynamics of sexual and intimate partner violence as well as a commitment for social justice. The Coalition is seeking a candidate with excellent collaboration skills to work as a member of ICADV’s prevention team and to engage with multi-sectorial partners at the community and state levels.
Responsibilities of the Prevention Specialist position will include outreach, program planning, implementation, evaluation and reporting. With an empowerment-focused perspective, the Prevention Specialist will engage with agencies and individuals representing priority populations to develop prevention programs that are responsive to the community’s needs and strengths. In addition, the Prevention Specialist will work with project partners to identify priority populations for inclusion in subsequent years of Indiana’s plan to prevent intimate partner violence. The position will require significant statewide and limited national travel.
ICADV is committed to the development of a broadly inclusive workplace; candidates from underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply for this position.
