The Crown Heights Community Mediation Center is currently looking to hire a Men’s Empowerment Coordinator to work in our in-house therapeutic program. Make It Happen is a trauma informed and culturally competent program with a focus on providing support services to young men of color 16 to 24 who have been directly or indirectly impacted by community violence. Participants in the Make It Happen program receive individual counseling, group therapy, advocacy, and case management.
The Men’s Empowerment Coordinator will facilitate access to traditional victim service agencies and delivery of on-site support for young men of color who have been impacted by community violence. The role of the Coordinator will be to deliver services to young men of color who have experienced violence and trauma. By combining supportive services with awareness-raising among existing victim service providers about the needs of this population, the Coordinator will be able to help improve the response to these unrecognized victims.
Please reach out with any questions to Mr. Kenton Kirby, Director of Trauma Support Services
