Who We Are

Resolve (formerly known as IMPACT) was started in 1999 when volunteers and staff at Solace (Santa Fe’s rape crisis center) organized the first class, acknowledging the significant need in our community for effective violence prevention skills. Resolve teaches research-based, trauma informed curricula to youth and adults, primarily through collaborations with schools and other organizations, as well as classes for the public. We teach comprehensive violence prevention:

• Using an anti-oppression lens, we work to prevent future acts of violence and support healthier communities

• We support students in exploring healthy boundaries and healthy relationships

• We teach skills to defend oneself or others (bystander intervention) verbally or physically, if necessary.

Our mission is to prevent violence by building skills and inspiring individuals to be agents of personal, community, and cultural change.

Position Description

The primary responsibilities of this full-time position include: coordinating classes, building and maintaining positive community partnerships with area schools and organizations, and teaching interactive and experiential violence prevention classes. While this position will be trained to teach a variety of different violence prevention curricula, this position will focus on youth programming, primarily in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico. These programs include our anti-bias/anti-bullying classes, sexual assault/domestic violence prevention, as well as experiential children’s self-defense classes. All training in these curricula will be provided. The Program Coordinator directly supports the Executive Director through ongoing collaboration and coordination on short, medium and long-term organizational goals. In collaboration with the Executive Director, the Administrative and Development Coordinator, and additional Instructors, the Program Coordinator organizes, schedules and executes programs for groups. Teaching experience, proficiency in Spanish, and/or work in the fields of violence prevention, sexual assault/domestic violence, and anti-bias education is preferred. Interest in empowerment-based self-defense is also a plus.

• You are self-motivated and enjoy owning projects.

• You practice healthy communication and enjoy working within a team of people who live the values around communication that we teach to others.

• You value community collaboration and building relationships across agencies.

• You value self-care and know how to put that value into practice.

• You pride yourself on balancing the big picture and project details without letting things fall through the cracks
