Survivors’ Corner is seeking three independent contractors to fulfill the Survivor Leader Consultant role for the Cultivating Youth Resilience Project.
The goal of the Cultivating Youth Resilience Project is to develop new web-based, synchronous trauma-informed curriculum segregated into separate learning modules to enhance the handling of child abuse cases in a manner which minimizes additional harm to victims and their families. These modules will be based on understanding the physical, emotional, and psychological impact of child abuse on the child victim and their families, the predictive health and socioeconomic factors of adverse childhood experiences, tools and techniques for promoting resilience when abuse has been disclosed, and effectively managing child abuse cases in a manner which minimizes additional harm to the child and their family. Compassion fatigue and secondary trauma will also be addressed.
This curriculum development is unique in that it will be led by adult survivors of childhood abuse along with input from social service field experts.
Adult survivors of various forms of child abuse are encouraged to apply. The Survivor Leader Consultants will have the opportunity to use their direct experience to inform this curriculum and provide insight and education to field workers.
Candidates selected to fulfill the Survivor Leader Consultant role will be required to work up to 6 hours weekly on this project until 06/30/2021. Compensation will be provided at the hourly rate of $39 per hour. Fringe benefits will not be provided. The effective date of this role is estimated to begin in mid-February.
Interested applicants must submit an application to be reviewed by the Survivors’ Corner Board of Directors and will be subject to an interview with one or more board members and the Community Enrichment Officer.
Application period opens 02/03/2021 and closes 02/10/2021.
