Full- and Part-Time Counselors
OVERNIGHT AND DAY/EVENINGS
Kids in Crisis seeks Counselors (full-time and part-time, both overnight and day/evenings) who will be responsible for maintaining a therapeutic atmosphere on our campus by providing high quality care to our clients and monitoring and coordinating all areas of client activities. Counselors will help clients to meet planned goals, participate in crisis intervention and behavior management programs and teach life skills. Most importantly, we are looking for someone who can set a good example and serve as a role model for our children and teens.
The Counselor will make comprehensive observations, maintain records and discuss client progress towards goals/objectives. Positions will be available at our Crisis Nursery for children newborn to age 12 and at our Teen House for ages 12 to 17.
A Bachelor’s degree is required, preferably in a social or behavioral science. Work, volunteer or intern experience in human services is a plus. You must have the ability to work in a team environment and exercise good judgment. Counselors must be willing to work a schedule that may include nights and weekends as we provide 24-hour, 7-day-a-week service to clients. Supervision is available on an ongoing basis.
Put your strengths and skills into play as a member of our dedicated team of professionals who help make a difference in children's lives.
