Ohio Statewide Opioid Project VISTA Leader
The Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACBHA), is looking to recruit and host a VISTA Leader to help coordinate a new statewide project to address Ohio’s opioid epidemic. The VISTA Leader will work in close partnership with the OACBHA VISTA project director to develop and implement a 25-member VISTA project. The VISTA Leader will work to enhance the VISTA experience for all OACBHA connected sites, projects, and members. This will be an outstanding opportunity to connect with local and statewide organizations doing cutting edge work to address one of Ohio’s leading health crises, the opioid epidemic. The VISTA Leader will work in partnership with several County Hubs working to combat opioid addiction along with statewide and community organizations working on the front lines of the opioid crisis. The VISTA Leader will play a key role in helping to create a supportive, encouraging environment in which VISTA members and their host sites can effectively and meaningfully develop capacity and sustainability regarding the community response to the opioid epidemic throughout Ohio. Activities include: recruitment and ongoing support of new VISTA members, training and development of VISTA members; organizational and project development; ongoing member support; and project compliance. The VISTA Leader assignment would be best served by someone with excellent organizational skills and an understanding of or interest in Ohio’s opioid epidemic. Applicants must have already served at least one year as an AmeriCorps Member, VISTA Member, or NCCC Team Member.
