SHARE Foundation Violence Intervention
 
 
 
SHARE Foundation, in El Dorado AR was voted one of the Best Places to Work in AR and One of the Top 10 Non Profits of the Year by Arkansas Business, both in 2019. The Union County Violence Intervention Plan (VIP) was formed out of a concern for negative behaviors and the root causes of rising crime and violence. As Union County's VIP VISTA, you will be at the forefront of prevention efforts addressing at-risk behaviors that work to break the cycle of poverty and reduce crime/violence. Establishing life-long relationships with like-minded groups to develop, strengthen, and implement prevention/intervention efforts across economic and generational lines will become a reality. Being the connecting force between social service resource hubs, nonprofits, schools, law enforcement and families in need, will be the norm. There are 6 areas of focus: Mentoring, Re-entry, Neighborhoods, Parenting/Life Skills, Jobs/targeted Education and Mental Health/Substance Abuse. In these areas you will strengthen programs impacting children, teens, their parents and grandparents/guardians, those reintegrating into the community from incarceration and abusive home situations, and those suffering from addiction and mental issues. Skills to be learned include administrative, marketing, networking, public relations, event planning and volunteer coordination. A strong candidate will have the skills necessary to research the latest trends in mental health and, substance abuse and develop program curriculum to be used in the appropriate setting. Candidate must have good computer skills in order to create reports and evaluation tools to measure the program’s success. Must be able to track large sums of data and be able to summarize information in a succinct way to convey the data verbally and in writing. Must have a good working knowledge of social media, be proficient in Word and Excel. A working knowledge of Facebook and Access is beneficial. Some office experience preferred.
