Job Summary:

The Community Development Extension Educator 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 that support: thriving individuals and families; effective organizations; healthy and vibrant communities; and strong economies.

This Community Development Extension Educator position will serve Waushara County, WI and surrounding communities.
The Community Development Extension Educator designs, delivers, and evaluates research-based educational programming and services aligned with the following programmatic focus: leadership development, strategic planning, and community engagement.

This position will also play a lead role in supporting the development of statewide education, tools, and resources related to effective community engagement processes and strategies.

As part of the position's county-based work, the Community Development Extension Educator connects Waushara County and its communities to other Community Development and Extension resources and supports priority local initiatives through the facilitation of group and community and local government planning processes.

Details:
Programmatic Focus: Organizational and Leadership Development (extension.
wisc.
edu\">https://leadershipdevelopment.
extension.
wisc.
edu
) with an emphasis on leadership development, strategic planning, and community engagement.
The Educator's work will serve Waushara County government, other local governments within the county, and community-serving organizations including nonprofits and coalitions.

Examples of this work include:

* Support the development of organizational leaders through educational programs (e.
g.
workshops, trainings, cohort-based learning).
Organizations served include county and local government, and nonprofits and coalitions.
Two immediate needs include,
* Collaborating with the county administrator and human resources department, and Extension's Local Government Education (LGE) Program to offer leadership training for county department heads and managers around topics such as roles and responsibilities, effective communication, conflict resolution, decision-making, and relationship building.

* Collaborating with the county planning and zoning department, and the LGE Program to offer training for plan commissioners on roles and responsibilities, and effective community engagement strategies.

* Work with local governments, nonprofits, and other community-serving organizations to design and facilitate strategic planning and goal setting processes that address priority issues in the county (e.
g.
work with local chambers of commerce to identify strategic priorities and develop action plans that will address economic development goals).

* Work with nonprofits, local governments, and other community-serving organizations to design and deliver programs and processes that enhance community participation and engagement.
The specific program(s) will be agreed upon with partners, but could include:
* A program for residents to learn about county/municipal government, build relationships with local officials, and learn how to work with the county/city to address needs in the community.

* A program that builds the leadership skills and civic engagement of youth through serving on local boards and decision-making bodies.

* Assist community-serving organizations with identifying and collecting information that will inform decisions (e.
g.
Waushara County staff engagement, resident input surveys/town halls as part of comprehensive plan updates).
This may include assistance with the design of community input, connecting organizations to University resources that gather and analyze relevant data, and researching best practices.

Meeting Other Local Needs:
The Community Development (CD) Extension Educator will prioritize and spend most of their time on a clearly defined programmatic focus: leadership development, strategic planning, and community engagement.

To the degree local needs shift or other programmatic needs arise, the CD Educator will serve as the primary conduit for the community to access the appropriate research and educational resources, if they are available within the Community Development Institute (wisc.
edu/community-development).
\">https://extension.
wisc.
edu/community-development).
The educator serves as the \"on-ramp\" for the community to access the wide range of resources in CD and Extension more generally.
Examples of such resources include: training for local government officials, assistance with housing needs studies, broadband, and food entrepreneurship.

Recognizing that, regardless of programmatic area of focus, CD Educators are often called upon to support the facilitation of community and group processes (e.
g.
action planning, visioning, group decision-making), all CD Educators will have these core competencies and support these efforts as resources allow.

Statewide Contributions:
Educators are expected to contribute to statewide efforts related to their area of focus.
This benefits the local funding partner.
Through their statewide work, the Educator is connected to the most current research, best practices, programming, and networks.
They bring that expertise back to the county for application to local issues and needs.

This particular Community Development Educator will support the development of statewide education, tools, and resources related to effective community engagement processes and strategies.
This position will play an important role in ensuring Extension is responding to that need.
This would include working with Organizational and Leadership Development and Local Government Education colleagues to:
* Design trainings for organization leaders and local government committees (e.
g.
plan commissions) that increase their understanding of community engagement strategies (e.
g.
surveys, town halls, visioning).

* Develop a community engagement toolkit (e.
g.
templates, case studies, tip sheets) that supports leaders in organizations and local governments with engaging community members in developing solutions to community needs and challenges.
