Wellness Employee Roles

The Wellness Coalition now has two employees. Each is part-time.

Three further part-time posts are being advertised.

We also have a roster of occasional helpers who can be paid for their assistance at specific events, for example to DJ for a teen dance, or when chaperones are needed, etc.

The employees all attend meetings of the Block island Wellness Coalition, and work with the Directors of the Coalition.
