Communications consultant for RWJF's Reclaiming Futures program -- Seattle-King County, Washington

The Foundation's program, Reclaiming Futures: Communities Helping Teens Overcome Drugs, Alcohol, and Crime, was designed to: (1) develop new service delivery models that integrate comprehensive services into the juvenile justice system and promote the creation of community-based systems of care for substance-abusing youthful offenders; and (2) foster the development of local judicial leadership to guide juvenile justice and substance abuse treatment partnerships, and assist community-based treatment providers in assessing their effectiveness.This contract provides support for two part-time communications consultants who have been contracted to educate, inform, and improve the communications capacity within a particular Reclaiming Futures' community (one in Marquette County, Michigan, and one in Seattle-King County, Washington). The communications specialist will work with the Reclaiming Futures site project director, national communications director, and Reclaiming Futures fellows. Deliverables include developing communication plans, videos, speakers' bureau, outreach materials, events, and media relations. The work will engage community members, leaders, and policy makers in creating opportunities for youth in the juvenile justice system.
