One of the founding board members of CTCI is an RPCV (Tanzania 06-08) and recognizes that another more recent RPCV may have the magic combination of energy, passion, project management experience, and willingness to temporarily relocate to a very rural area that CTCI is looking for. Brownwood, Texas is over an hour's drive from any city and about three hours from any major metropolitan area, making it difficult to attract highly qualified professionals. However, it does have a low cost of living, all the essential amenities, and a peaceful pace of life. This could be an excellent opportunity for an RPCV who has an interest in mental health, is willing to take the time and effort to learn about the Clubhouse model, and would like to add an Executive Director position and reference to their resume.
