It’s Time Texas is growing, and we need smart, passionate, purpose-driven people to join our team. Here’s our truth: we’re ambitious, we’re different, we’re going all in on building a culture of health in Texas. To do this, we are organizing a social movement around the core value that Texas is best when Texans are healthy. By working with partners and supporters throughout the state, we are changing behaviors, practices, and policies to make healthy living central to what it means to be a Texan. Sound good so far?

The ideal candidate has experience with community capacity building and engagement (ideally in multiple forms and types of engagement) and is eager to help us expand our thinking about our current work. We are looking for a dynamic, disciplined leader to guide the planning, organizing, operating, staffing, and growth of our community programs team. This person is resourceful, decisive, and focused on maximizing our potential and supporting a strong, talented team that is passionate about the people and communities we serve.
