Contracted Director


PaPSC Job Opportunity
Reports to: Board of Directors
Location: Pennsylvania Virtual Office

Position Overview: The Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition (PaPSC) seeks a passionate Contracted Director to lead a member-driven organization. The coalition was developed to ensure that Pennsylvania peer support services are consumer-driven and to provide resources and support for individuals who provide peer support. Membership in the coalition is not limited to Medical Assistance billable certified peer specialists, but is inclusive of all who provide peer support services. We believe that advocacy for the peer support profession is a vital role of the PaPSC. To this end, we believe mental health services should lead to recovery. We believe everyone has the ability to live a full life, to contribute to society, to use their talents and to grow. We believe that peer support specialists can help an individual move in this direction by supporting hope, self-advocacy, empowerment, and individual strengths. We support efforts to transform Pennsylvania's mental health system to become more recovery-oriented. A recovery oriented system is one that honors people's choices, empowers them to make decisions, and supports them to have a full and meaningful life outside of the mental health system.

The Contracted Director reports to the Board of Directors with the top priorities being relationship building with members and partners. The ideal candidate will have a combination of experiences including, but not limited to: leading an organization, developing relationships, training skills to include facilitation and development of peer support related curricula, marketing and grant writing skills. The general duties of the Contracted Director are described in the following link and will evolve as the Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition continues to grow.
