The City of Tucson is seeking a highly professional individual to join the Community Safety, Health, and Wellness Office as a Community Enrichment Coordinator. This is an exciting opportunity to join a team of dedicated professionals who work to advance community safety, health, and wellness initiatives throughout the City of Tucson.
Tucson has been continuously inhabited for over 12,000 years and celebrates a unique diversity of cultures, architecture, and peoples. One of the oldest towns in the United States, Tucson officially became part of the United States with the Gadsden Purchase of 1854 and served as the capital of the Arizona Territory from 1867 to 1877. Now the 33rd largest city in the nation, Tucson maintains a strong connection to our cultural heritage as we look towards the future.
Surrounded by five mountain ranges, Tucson’s 220-plus square miles boast the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert and an unsurpassed climate of more than 350 sunny days a year – yet is just a short drive from the cool sub-alpine meadows on Mount Lemmon. Tucson is home to world-class outdoor recreation, a vibrant, growing city center, renowned museums, and the University of Arizona.
The City of Tucson is dedicated to ensuring team members are from backgrounds as diverse as the community we serve, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The city is committed to engaging in cultural awareness, fighting implicit bias, and ensuring equity.
