TITLE: Health Educator – Specialty Crop Nutrition Education and Promotion Program
STATUS: Part-Time 20 hours/ week, Non-Exempt
PERIOD: Through the end of October 2022
REPORTS TO: Program Manager, Specialty Crop Nutrition Education and Promotion Program
Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles (SEE-LA) is a leading Southern California nonprofit organization, connecting people to healthy food, promoting economic development, and building sustainable food systems. We operate the largest network of mission-driven farmers’ markets in Los Angeles as well as programs that provide nutrition education, food access, and opportunities for small regional farms and local food businesses to thrive.
SEE-LA is currently seeking a dynamic individual to provide leadership and support in the teaching of food and nutrition education classes for its new Specialty Crop Nutrition Education and Promotion Program. SEE-LA has contracted with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to provide the Specialty Crop Nutrition Education and Promotion Program (SCNEPP). SCNEPP uniquely integrates specialty crop promotion, marketing strategies, and nutrition education across SEE-LA’s six farmers’ markets, which feature 86 specialty crop producers serving 13,000 Angelenos weekly. The Health Educator will be responsible for the implementation of virtual and hands-on teaching of nutrition and culinary classes as well as assist with other primary goals within the program’s scope of work such as participation in events, program outreach, data collection and input, and program evaluation measures. Annually, the SNCEPP Health Educator team will instruct 36 bilingual (English/ Spanish) adult nutrition education classes, 12 summer kids’ culinary classes, and engage in 24 seasonal specialty crop market events.
SCNEPP is a grant funded position and as such is time limited and funded through the end of October 2022. The position is structured for telecommuting but will require virtual class instruction from SEE-LA’s main office and in-person attendance at market events. At a later date, nutrition education and culinary classes may resume in person and will be hosted at SEE-LA’s farmers’ markets at that time.
The ideal candidate is flexible, a fast learner, thrives in a fast-paced and structured environment, enjoys teaching varied audiences, and is passionate about nutrition education and the promotion of local California farmers.
