The Department of Community and Human Services is hiring a Peer Connector responsible for outreach efforts that connect youth and young adults with re-engagement programs throughout King County.
Peer Connectors serve as a bridge between youth and the programs, services, and pathways designed to reconnect them to education and employment. The Peer Connectors act as role models and mentors who provide outreach, recruitment, information, and support.
Reconnect to Opportunity is an outreach strategy supporting the King County Re-engagement Providers Network, a group of second-chance schools and employment training programs seeking to serve young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are disconnected from school or work. In King County over 20,000 young people need support to identify and enroll in such programs. The majority of young people disconnected from school or work are young people of color who have faced challenges. Candidates who have direct experience being disconnected from education, people of color, and individuals with bilingual skills are strongly encouraged to apply.
Peer Connectors will report to the Youth Outreach and Recruitment Manager and work as a team to ensure the success of the project.
