2020 MERIT: Community Engagement
 
 
 
The Medical Education Resources Initiative for Teens (MERIT) Health Leadership Academy is a non-profit organization that works with low-income, first-generation high school students pursuing careers in STEM/health professions. MERIT is dedicated to educating and empowering Baltimore City high school students to become health professionals and change agents who advance equity. MERIT scholars cultivate a deep understanding of their individual roles in solving health disparities through three years of intensive programming including weekly Saturday sessions, summer internships, and longitudinal mentoring. Scholars graduate with a burning passion for achieving health equity, a clear vision of how to reach their goals, a toolkit of knowledge and skills necessary for earning undergraduate and graduate degrees, and a close-knit community of peers and mentors who will continue to work collaboratively toward their collective goal of becoming community change agents. MERIT’s program relies on the support and collaboration of a large network of volunteers and partner organizations. MERIT is seeking a “Community Engagement Coordinator” who will lead outreach and recruitment efforts, plan events, and manage communications.

Member Duties : Overall, the Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for being the front door into the MERIT organization for prospective paid instructors, partners (clinical and community health) and volunteers (teaching assistants, tutors, mentors). The CEC will spend a lot of time interacting and recruiting a diverse range of interested MERIT stakeholders. While it is not necessary for the CEC to have health or science expertise, he/she will need to adequately explain the need for engaged stakeholders to support scholars in reaching key career milestones. The CEC will also be responsible for telling the MERIT story through all communication platforms including social media, newsletters, earned media, website, and more. Finally, the CEC will manage all events for the organization, with support from the rest of the team.
