Employment Opportunity: PROSPER Network Coordinator

Posted: September 8, 2023

Unposted: October 15, 2023

Organizational Overview

RecoveryPeople is a statewide recovery community organization based in Texas. We engage, educate and empower individuals to use their lived experience to support others impacted by substance use and related mental health challenges. We envision an ecosystem of recovery in every community that is accessible to everyone. Together with the recovery community and ally organizations, we create a social impact network to drive systems level change. Social impact network refers to a system of interconnected people and organizations that work together to solve complex problems and impact social change. The network’s potential is measured through the quantity and quality of the relationships within it. Attraction is a reflection of shared goals, impact and trust. Through an inclusive network of networks, we can link different areas of focus and perspectives.

We believe diversity and inclusion are key drivers of creativity and innovation and we actively seek out candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply for roles in our organization.


Position Overview   

RecoveryPeople is seeking a “Network Weaver” to serve as the Project Coordinator for a federally funded project: Peer and Recovery Organization Sustainability, Planning, Equity and Research (PROSPER). The success of the project will greatly depend on the Project Coordinators ability to “weave” (e.g. recruit, engage and connect) individuals and organizations into the PROSPER network who represent one of three groups:

  • Peer and recovery organizations (PROs) 
  • Payers, meaning agencies and organizations that directly or indirectly pay or could pay for peer and recovery services
  • Stakeholders, meaning individuals, organizations, and legislative offices that have a vested interest in increasing the access of peer and recovery support services in Texas.


Key Duties and Responsibilities

  • Weave the PROSPER network, meaning recruit, engage and interconnect target individuals and organizations, establishing and re-establishing letters of commitment and memorandums of agreement.
  • Develop and implement a communication and marketing plan
  • Coordinate activities across the project’s team including employees, contractors and advisory committee members
  • Support data collection, evaluation and reporting towards performance objectives and funder requirements. 
  • Facilitate advisory committee engagement and feedback towards rapid-cycle quality improvement.
  • Serve as the point of contact for grant’s manager and respond to funder requests in a timely manner
  • Receive constructive feedback with grace, using it to iterate and improve
  • Thrive in a remote, fast-paced, flexible work environment
  • Other tasks as assigned.



  • Be 18 years old or older. Texas resident.
  • Proven ability to work remotely, self motivate and successfully manage competing priorities. Access to reliable, High Speed Internet
  • Proven work experience leading community organizing or mobilizing initiatives and recruiting membership or participation in initiatives; virtual network experience is preferred.
  • Excellent customer service skills, group facilitation skills, written and verbal communication skills, and marketing, time management and organizational skills.
  • Strong working knowledge of Zoom (virtual conferencing), Google Apps, WordPress, or similar web-based technologies
  • Some travel required.
  • Deep understanding of peer and recovery organizations and support services; peer specialists or similar credentials preferred.
  • Business or payer background preferred



Salary range: $40,000 to $50,000, depending on experience and certifications. 

Much more valuable than salary, you will be working in a mission-driven, peer-led recovery organization culture where you can work from home, have a flexible schedule, and work with a team dedicated to helping transform people’s lives. We encourage you to have a person-driven professional development plan, and when eligible, participate in our programs.
