Social Development Research Group, School of Social Work
Intervention Specialist (.65 FTE).
The Intervention Specialist will be responsible for coaching community coordinators in the implementation of the Communities That Care (CTC) prevention model using the Annie E. Casey "Evidence to Success" Framework.
Communities That Care is a community-wide prevention system that brings together representatives from all sectors of a community to identify priority risk and protective factors in youth data and help child-serving systems like child welfare, juvenile justice, and education work together to fund proven, tested, and effective prevention programs that address the priority risk and protective factors directly. These programs are then implemented with fidelity to their specifications, under community oversight, and progress is tracked in youth outcomes to ensure the desired results are achieved. Evidence2Success is based heavily on the Communities That Care system with added components for strategic financing and structured technical assistance to public systems.
The role of the Intervention Specialist is to oversee the implementation of Evidence2Success in new participating communities, ensuring adherence to technical aspects of program implementation, and fidelity to the CTC operating system at the community level. Because of the high level of the public system representatives involved, and the high visibility of the funding organization (the Annie E. Casey Foundation), this position requires diplomacy and adeptness at dealing with complex organizational politics. The work requires on-site visits, in-person coaching, and ad hoc problem solving. The person in this position will serve as SDRG's primary representative for participating communities, and as such will be the face of the organization.
