Employment Opportunities

Interested in working with the team at HC DrugFree? We are currently looking for self-motivated Howard County professionals with a commitment to providing excellent customer service to youth and adults to fill at least one part-time Outreach Assistant position this fiscal year.

There are two different roles we are looking to fill, and these may be filled by one individual or two depending on the situation, and would be approximately 10-20 hours per week.

Outreach Assistant/Social Media: We are looking for someone to manage HC DrugFree’s social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram) and electronic newsletter. This individual will use these venues to advertise our programs and events as well as share prevention and educational information with the community. Experience with the above social media platforms is required and please let us know if you have experience with Constant Contact.

Outreach Assistant/Community Events Liaison: We are also looking for someone to assist in planning our large events (drive-thru medication collections, town halls, educational programs, Teen Advisory Council meetings, etc.) and attend other community events to share educational materials about substance use prevention and educate community members about what we do and how they can become involved. Due to the nature of event scheduling, this individual must be available to work evenings and weekends as necessary throughout the year. This individual must be able to carry a minimum of 10 pounds and have their own transportation to events throughout Howard County. While performing the duties of this job, the employee is regularly required to talk and hear.

Successful candidates must pass a background check and possess strong organizational skills, writing skills, and computer skills in Microsoft Office applications.  These positions may require some attendance in HC DrugFree’s office where COVID-19 risk prevention protocol is in place until lifted or modified at the discretion of HC DrugFree.

If interested in applying, let us know what experience you have working with youth/adults, teaching youth/adult classes, planning programs/events, working on grant applications, substance use/misuse, behavioral health, and/or other expertise you think would make you a good fit on our team by completing this application.

No benefits provided. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. No phone inquiries. We will reply to qualified candidates by email. Thank you.
