This recruitment will be used to fill one full-time Education Program Assistant 1 position for the Division of Extension and Engagement, Family and Community Health Program at Oregon State University (OSU).
The Oregon State University Extension Service invites applications for a full-time Education Program Assistant 1 (EPA) position. This position is with the Extension Service Family and Community Health (FCH) program, affiliated with the College of Public Health and Human Sciences. The individual in this position delivers programs in Multnomah County, and is based in the Extension Office in Portland located in the Brooklyn Neighborhood.
Extension programs in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences align toward a common vision of lifelong health and well-being for individuals, families, and communities. The central purpose of this position is to extend the knowledge and research of OSU to the communities of Oregon in a manner that is responsive to local needs and respectful of local norms and culture. The incumbent joins a network of campus-and community-based Extension faculty and staff who share this responsibility for community engagement.
Purpose of the Position
This EPA1 position is part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed) Program, a nutrition education program in Extension Family and Community Health. Extension educators provide evidence-based interventions through SNAP-Ed, a nutrition education and obesity prevention program targeting SNAP eligible audiences. Programs are designed to promote healthy eating habits and a physically active lifestyle. All programming is done in collaboration with community partners, such as schools, food banks and pantries, and government and non-profit agencies. Funding is provided in part by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through a contract with Oregon Department of Human Services.
The EPA will focus on providing programming to African Heritage populations in the Portland Metropolitan Area. This position will actively participate and support the FCH/SNAP-Ed African Heritage work group. The African Heritage work group is part of the Cultural Work Groups Initiative, which also includes the Latinx, Indigenous Peoples and Pasifika (Pacific Islanders) groups. These groups are guiding the development of culturally-sensitive approaches to support and uplift these communities, prioritize their needs, as well as develop culturally-appropriate nutrition and physical activity resources. The individual in this position will be responsive to the needs and wants of the African Heritage communities. They will need to prioritize relationship building and contribute in the development of culturally-tailored approaches to serve these populations.
The EPA will work under the supervision of the SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator and the Extension FCH/ SNAP-Ed State Program Team. Programs are implemented in a manner that measures impact, fosters program improvement and strengthens community connections.
