BRACE Youth Engagement and Disabilities Coordinator
About the organization
Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) is a community-based disaster coalition of partners in Pensacola, FL focused on disaster preparedness, response and recovery for our community and throughout the state. Since the founding of BRACE in 2006 following Hurricanes Ivan and Dennis, BRACE have proven that partnership is the key to accomplish together what no individual or organization could alone. BRACE assisted thousands of survivors of hurricanes, floods and tornadoes through the often difficult path to recovery by restoring hope and homes. We have reached over 100,000 individuals with emergency preparedness, training and education that will provide benefit to our community for at least a generation. BRACE's collective impact on resilience of our community have been recognized more frequently by FEMA through the Individual & Community Preparedness Awards Program than any similar organization.
BRACE's Youth Engagement and Disabilities Coordinator will engage key leadership throughout Escambia County to establish an engaging youth program that will provide disaster preparedness training through area schools, after school programs, clubs, and community organizations. In addition, the annual Youth Emergency Preparedness Event will be coordinated to engage youth from the surrounding areas to make the next generation more disaster resilient. Finally the VISTA work closely with the BRACE Functional Needs and Support Services (FNSS) Committee to ensure disaster plans and training opportunities are provided for those in the community with disabilities which may make them vulnerable in times of disaster.
College degree is preferred; Strong communication and organizational skills; Passion for helping children; Experience working with children preferred but not required.
