Job Summary:

The Health & Well-Being Extension Educator is an integral part of the UW-Madison Division of Extension and works alongside the people of Wisconsin to improve lives and communities. Extension serves the people and communities of Wisconsin by addressing local, statewide and national issues, improving lives through research-based education, fostering partnerships and action, and facilitating positive impacts.

Our educators deliver education where people live and work - on farms, in schools and communities. Extension educators also work with civic groups and local governments, write newspaper columns, conduct radio and TV programs, facilitate meetings and build coalitions to solve community problems. This is done through assessment of local, regional and statewide needs in the area of the position's programmatic emphasis and designing, delivering, and evaluating research-based educational programming and services to meet these needs.

This position is a part of the Division of Extension Health & Well-Being Institute. The Health & Well-Being Institute works to catalyze positive change in Wisconsin families through evidence-based community health promotion programs in the areas of healthy eating, active living and behavioral health.

This dynamic position has an emphasis in the Behavioral Health Program including:
- Assessing community efforts related to youth and family health and well-being, including physical, social and emotional health
- Providing leadership and educational outreach to individuals, families and communities to promote positive mental health and prevent substance use disorders
- Increasing community capacity to identify and address health inequities
- Collaborating with established partners to align programmatic resources and coordinate efforts to promote community health and well-being and health equity
The ideal candidate is adept at building and maintaining trust-based relationships, engaging stakeholders and applying an equity lens towards transforming lives and communities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
