Outreach Counselor - Living in Recovery (814)

Outreach Coordinator

Living in Recovery - Recovery Support Center

Pittsfield, MA

Full-time - 40 hr/week

We're looking for a creative, outgoing person in recovery to reach out and involve others in the community, expanding and supporting the membership of our peer-led recovery support center.

As an Outreach Coordinator, you will:  

·  Meet with people where they are-in programs, in the community, at public events-and help recruit new members to Living in Recovery.

·  Increase community awareness of recovery support services, which are designed to make recovery lively, interesting, sustainable, and fun.

·  Provide members of the Living in Recovery community with the training, support, and other resources they need to become involved and active.

·  Flex your time around the community's events and programs, working some evening and weekend hours as part of your regular schedule.

This is a vital role, requiring leadership, creativity, stamina, and the kind of confidence earned from at least two years of lived experience in recovery. In addition to an Associate's degree in a related field, you've also had some years of practice effectively connecting one-on-one, in groups, and between agencies-and you're comfortable with public speaking. Certification as a Recovery Coach is preferred; otherwise, training will be provided. You also need a valid driver's license and reliable vehicle since you will be covering a lot of territory; mileage reimbursed.
