Do you want to be part of a supportive leadership team that models strong professional and creative problem-solving skills to social workers and clinicians? Would you like to make an impact on your community as a Social Services Program Manager for Wraparound in Kern, California?

As part of the team-based approach, you’ll participate in group supervision, staff meetings and have the ability to shadow those you supervise to provide in-the-moment modeling, coaching, and feedback. As a way to strengthen families and support in times of need, you will provide back up after hours support to social workers on a rotation basis.
