CAMBA’s Violence Prevention and Intervention Services program seeks an Adult Health Educator for its Enough is Enough Initiative. The Enough is Enough Law (New York State Education Law 129-B) was signed into law by Governor Cuomo in July 2015. The goal of the Enough is Enough Initiative requires all New York State Colleges and Universities to adopt comprehensive policies, procedures and guidelines to address the prevention of and response to campus sexual assault, intimate partner/dating violence and stalking. Enough is Enough is funded by the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence which supports programs’ efforts in providing prevention of sexual violence and direct victim services on campuses across the State.
