Job Description - Eastern Regional Organizer
Background:    The West Virginia Healthy Kids and Families Coalition (WVHKFC) is a fast-growing, statewide citizens organization. We unite with everyday citizens to build power and fight for a better future for our children.
In the last 5 years, our budget has multiplied more than 12 times over, and our staff has grown from 1 to 14. Our programs run the gamut – from helping to pass 25 pieces of statewide policy change to awarding 206 mini-grants to community teams engaged in health and economic development projects to experimenting with candidate training and leadership development efforts. We are looking for a regional organizer for the Eastern region of the state – from Upshur County down through Greenbrier County, and up through the Eastern Panhandle. This person is responsible for traveling the region, working tirelessly to engage churches, students, community organizations, small businesses, unions, and especially low-income families in the work of making West Virginia “the best place to live, work and raise a family – no matter who you are.”
You are part team-builder, part cheerleader, part campaigner, part issue expert, and part leadership trainer. The ideal candidate is an exceptional listener, loves to travel West Virginia, can work with all different types of people, and who has a track record of really making things happen.
Responsibilities and Qualifications:    The Eastern Regional Organizer’s main job is to identify, recruit, train, and mobilize community leaders to take action on the local and statewide issues that matter to them. You will have the support of our team, but the final responsibility for covering the Eastern region is yours. 
You must be willing and able to travel extensively, and are required to:
• Spend at least 5 days/month in the Eastern Panhandle if you live elsewhere
• Build and maintain relationships in rural communities through frequent, regular face to face meetings
• Travel to Charleston for trainings, meetings and events approximately once a month
• Attend additional statewide events outside your region
Our ideal candidate is someone able to tackle all, or nearly all, of these responsibilities:
• Organize at least 10 candidate forums, town halls, or community meetings in your region annually – to identify the local and statewide policy issues that matter to your region… and translate those issues into action at the state capitol as part of the Our Children, Our Future Campaign (ocofwv.org) and OCOF Safety Net Campaign.
• Organize at least 3 leadership development or candidate trainings, supporting emerging leaders in your region with the skills they need to be more effective volunteer organizers, advocates, and community leaders.
• Recruit, train, and support at least 5 Try This (trythiswv.com) community teams from your region, helping them knock WV off the top of the worst health lists through projects like community gardens, walking trails, and farmers markets.
• Recruit, train, and support at least 3 Families Leading Change teams that are working to improve their local public schools in a tangible way (starting a dads’ program, adding a vocational program, etc.).
• Recruit, train, and support at least 3 youth-led student chapters from high schools or colleges in the region – to be engaged in all of the above work.
• Find ways to make sure that the Eastern region is represented in our other projects and programs – voter turnout, Healthy Bodies Healthy Spirits, Parent Wellness Network, Strong Mountain Communities, and Call to Action Racial Equality.
• Raise at least $5,000 your first year – through individual giving, grants, etc. – to help support your salary and grow your region. (New staff members are offered plenty of training and support in learning how to fundraise.)
• Be creative! One of the main parts of your job is to listen to the frustration and passion of your region and turn that passion into policy change.
Like everyone on our team, you will work hard and pitch in on everyone’s projects.  No two days will be alike.
The salary for this position could range between $30-38k -- depending on experience and skills. Our organization has generous paid-time-off and sabbatical plans, and a $500/month health stipend. Everyone on our staff receives introductory and on-going community organizing training.
To apply, please send the following information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the words “EASTERN ORGANIZER APPLICATION” in the subject heading of the e-mail:
• Resume
• Cover Letter that explains why you are interested and qualified for the position

2. What is one problem or issue that affects you personally, and how would you hope to incorporate that issue into your work as an organizer?
3. Imagine you are planning a candidate forum with legislators and county school board members in Martinsburg. You have 90 minutes, 12 total candidates, 3 issues to cover, and your main goal is to make sure that everyone who comes to the meeting gets excited to sign up to stay involved after the event.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 11, 2012           
VA Announces Aggressive National Recruitment Effort to Hire Mental Health Professionals
WASHINGTON (June 11, 2012)- Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki recently announced the department would add approximately 1,600 mental health clinicians as well as nearly 300 support staff to its existing workforce to help meet the increased demand for mental health services.  The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has developed an aggressive national recruitment program to implement the hiring process quickly and efficiently.
“The mental health and well-being of our brave men and women who have served the Nation is the highest priority for this department,” said Secretary Shinseki.  “We must ensure that all Veterans seeking mental health care have access to timely, responsive and high-quality care.” 
VA has developed an aggressive national mental health hiring initiative to improve recruitment and hiring, marketing, education and training programs, and retention efforts for mental health professionals, to include targeted recruitment in rural and highly-rural markets. This will help VA to meet existing and future demands of mental health care services in an integrated collaborative team environment and continue to position VA as an exemplary workplace for mental health care professionals. 
It is critical for VA to proactively engage psychiatrists and other mental health care providers about the vital mission to deliver high-quality mental health services, especially for returning combat Veterans.
“The VA mental health community is aggressively transforming the way mental health care services are provided to the Veteran population. As the mental health care workforce continues to increase, VA is committed to improving Veterans’ access to services, especially for at-risk Veterans,” said VA’s Under Secretary for Health Dr. Robert Petzel.  
The national recruitment program provides VHA with an in-house team of highly skilled professional recruiters employing private sector best practices to fill the agency’s most mission critical clinical and executive positions.  The recruitment team consists of 21 national, dedicated health care recruiters targeting physician and specialty health care occupations. These recruiters also understand the needs of Veterans because each member is a Veteran.  
VHA has also established a hiring and tracking task force to provide oversight for this initiative to move the process forward expeditiously in a focused manner to ensure challenges, issues, or concerns are addressed and resolved.  This task force is accountable for reporting progress in hiring of mental health professionals in these occupations: psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health nurses, social workers, mental health technicians, marriage and family therapists and licensed professional counselors. 
VHA anticipates the majority of hires will be selected within approximately six months and the most “hard-to-fill” positions filled by the end of the second quarter of FY 2013. VA has an existing workforce of 20,590 mental health staff that includes nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. 
Interested mental health care providers can find additional information about VA careers and apply for jobs online at www.vacareers.va.gov.  To locate the nearest VA facility or Vet Center for enrollment and to get scheduled for care, Veterans can visit VA’s website at www.va.gov.  Immediate help is available atwww.VeteransCrisisLine.net or by calling the Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 (push 1) or texting 838255.
