Rise Above Colorado proactively collaborates with teens, educators, community leaders and partners to provide scientific, credible, teen-centered, drug prevention information and facilitates a virtual space for teens to have a safe way to connect, learn, dialogue and support each other to lead a life free of drug abuse. Position Overview This position manages and implements a comprehensive outreach strategy to engage community and statewide partners to achieve specific, measurable results in reducing teen drug abuse, with specific emphasis on prescription drug abuse prevention.

The initiative will also demonstrate statistically significant change in teen perception of risk of using prescriptions drugs even once or twice from a baseline of 59% (2013 CO Teen Drug Use & Attitude Assessment) to 67%. • In 5 years the project will contribute to a statistically significant change in past year opioid abuse rates among youth 12-17 from a baseline of 6.35% (2012-13) NSDUH to a goal of 4%. This is a highly visible statewide position. The manager will represent the brand and professionalism of Rise Above Colorado and Colorado 9to25 at all times, represent the organization’s leadership in teen drug abuse prevention and build mutually beneficial and sustained partnerships.
