What is New Haven?
At the most basic level, New Haven is a residential treatment center and accredited school for troubled adolescent girls.
At a deeper level, New Haven is the efforts of countless individuals working to ensure that our girls are given a safe environment where they can build meaningful relationships with employees that drive healing and growth both for the girl herself and for her family. We emphasize familial connection because we believe that change within the family environment is just as change within the individual for long-term impacts.
If you understand the importance of healthy boundaries in relationships and want to participate in facilitating such a relational process to help our girls build a more hopeful future, then New Haven is the place for you!
New Haven specializes in complex issues such as traumatic stress, family problems, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidal idealization, eating disorder, substance abuse, attachment disorders, and personality disorders. We are growing, which means we can take in more girls and help support them on their recovery journey, but it also means that we need the staffing to grow too!
So what's the position? We are hiring for part-time youth mentors to serve as on-call staff with the potential opportunity in the near future to be on-shift staff. This position starts with a competitive wage of $11.50/hr. If you have a bachelor's degree, you will start at $12.50/hr.
On-call staff members have access to a shared google doc where they can see shift openings and sign up for those openings. It's very flexible for your needs, and many people love it for that exact reason. We do ask that our on-calls work 16 hours/week (they can work up to 30 hours/week if they want!), and we also ask that they work 2 Sunday shifts a month.
The daily shifts that may be available for on-calls to work are as follows:
Morning Shifts (M-F) 7am-3pm
Evening Shifts (M-F) 3pm-11pm
The Ideal Candidate:
The day-to-day life of a Youth Mentor can be extremely rewarding, but with any reward comes challenges. A typical shift includes assisting the girls with their day-to-day activities. You monitor and care for the physical, emotional, and social needs of New Haven's students. Most of your time is spent participating in activities with our teen students including going to the movies or museums, day hiking, river rafting, camping, and more! While participating in these fun activities, you ensure that our students are being safe with themselves and those around them. Because of all the time you spend with these teens, you are able to develop healthy and meaningful staff/student relationships as they grow and progress within the program.
