SRAE Health Educator Supervisors (HES) play a crucial role in leading their teams through the overall implementation process. They are responsible for orchestrating the simultaneous delivery of many programs at the same time, supervising their staff, and nurturing relationships with community stakeholders. This page provides a map to ACT for Youth supervisor resources to help facilitate this process effectively.

Getting Started

What is this project all about?

The SRAE Initiative web page provides an overview, while the Request for Applications (RFA) fully describes the initiative as designed by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).

What are my responsibilities?

Part of the original SRAE RFA, the HES job description clearly outlines the responsibilities and qualifications of Health Educator Supervisor so that all parties understand the expectations of those running the SRAE project. SRAE RFA attachments also include a standard work plan, offering another way to view Department of Health expectations.

Planning, Management, and Supervision

ACT for Youth is ready to provide support and guidance in your planning and management processes — and you will find many resources tailored for SRAE providers on the website!


Be sure that your planning process involves key stakeholders, incorporating input from youth, parents, caregivers, and community partners. By adopting a collaborative process, you can strengthen your approach to equity, improve your effectiveness, build a robust referral network, and plan for sustainability.

Remember, too, that utilizing a trauma-informed approach is essential to effective programming. Youth-serving organizations often provide services for populations at a heightened susceptibility for experiencing trauma and have a significant role in developing resiliency.

Hiring and Orienting Educators

Training Educators

Supervisors need to be aware of which trainings are required and recommended, and when trainings are offered by ACT for Youth. All health educators as well as supervisors who facilitate lessons at implementation sites are required by NYSDOH to complete the online training "Implementing Evidence-Based Programs" before the programs begin. Request log-in for online course.

Supervising Educators

Evaluation: Documentation and Reporting

Documentation and reporting are key HES responsibilities. Supervisors are expected to review the data educators enter into the Online Reporting System and are responsible for submitting timely biannual reports.
