Requisition Number: 11272
Position Title: Youth Care Professional - Lead
Lead Youth Counselor
As a Lead Youth Counselor, you will have the capacity to make lasting change in children, youth and young adults lives. You will ignite your passion for helping at-risk youth and gain skills to advance your career in social services, law enforcement, or psychology.
Although your primary responsibility is to provide care for up to eight youth in a residential setting, your real job, the job you’ll remember, is to show these boys what it feels like to have somebody care about them. And in return, you’ll understand what it means to change the direction of another person’s life.
As a Lead Youth Counselor with Aspiranet in Turlock, California, you’ll support the Cottage Manager ensuring the cottage runs smoothly in their absence. You will be helping to ensure boys and young men who have come experienced much trauma receive love and care. This is the ideal position for a recent college graduate looking for an enriching experience to launch their career, a stay-at-home parent seeking to reenter the workforce, or someone working on their Master’s degree in social work or psychology.
The Lead Youth Counselor provides stability and discipline inside one of Aspiranet’s residential cottages in Turlock, California. This flexible position with evening and weekend hours allows you to do something you’re passionate about while gaining leadership experience working with troubled boys and young men.
While your primary responsibility is providing oversight, structure and comfort for children and youth. Your success as a Lead Youth Counselor will depend on your ability to motivate the teams’ creativity in engaging the youth. You will be directly responsible for maintaining a sense of calm and order with a group of boys that often has not had either in their lives.
You will work with a team of professionals, including therapists and psychiatrists, who share your dedication to making a difference in kids’ lives. You will have exposure to plan development and team dynamics that will help you reach your career goals.
Aspiranet offers a competitive salary, an exceptional team-based environment, and a great benefits package that includes employer-paid healthcare, dental, vision and wellness care. Aspiranet rewards you for the work you do – engaging with your clients and helping them meet their goals.
