We are committed to doing our part to ensure Bridgton is a community where all people can be healthy, be well connected to their neighbors, and able to access economic opportunities. The Opportunity Alliance is looking to expand our dedication to these goals by hiring a Community Builder in Bridgton. This position works directly with service providers and residents to build strong, trusting relationships with providers and increase neighbor connections to community resources and to each other. The Community Builder must become an expert on the neighborhood being served by understanding the needs, strengths, and aspirations of the neighbors and ensuring the local systems and providers are reflective and responsive to those neighbor needs and strengths.
This role would do direct relationship building with community members (particularly those in marginalized groups) to understand needs around social connection, physical/built environment and economic opportunities. They would bridge needs back with local providers and also take the lead on community-led projects and activities in Bridgton. This is a part-time 20 hour/week role with flexible schedule and ability to work remotely.
