Overall Description:  The Adolescent Mental Health Specialist is a dynamic and passionate public health professional who will help coordinate and grow Grassroot Soccer’s (GRS) new adolescent mental health practice area. As member of the GRS Global Research & Development Team, the Specialist will provide cross-functional support to GRS impact teams and functional units with a range of adolescent mental health activities, including program design, curriculum development, training, research, monitoring and evaluation, business development, and strategic communications/marketing. While remote, the position is expected to travel 25-30% within Sub-Saharan Africa to provide technical assistance to GRS country teams and programs.

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) is a rapidly growing adolescent health organization that leverages the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize at-risk youth in developing countries to overcome their greatest health challenges, live healthier, more productive lives, and be agents for change in their communities. Since 2002, GRS programs have reached 13 million young people in over 60 countries with life-saving HIV prevention and sexual and reproductive health information and services. GRS is looking to continue scaling its impact via technical assistance and partnerships over the next five years.

In January 2022, GRS launched a multi-year strategy to guide organizational growth in adolescent mental health and elevate it as an organizational priority alongside existing focus issues such as HIV and sexual and reproductive health. Since this launch, GRS has already started mental health programming in Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, and Zambia. To achieve our goal of improving adolescent mental health and well-being, GRS is pursuing a set of four strategic priorities:  INTEGRATE — mainstream positive mental health content in all GRS “SKILLZ” programs; INNOVATE — develop innovative mental health promotion and prevention programs; ADVOCATE — reduce stigma and create environments that support adolescent mental health; and EVALUATE — identify a clear and compelling research and learning agenda for adolescent mental health.
