Youth Workers fulfill a vital role for our young people. They watch and learn from you. As they grow to know you, they begin to connect with you. They begin to trust. They begin to heal.

Can they be challenging? YUP. Can they be difficult? Werent we all difficult as kids, especially during our teens years? Residential placement may be the first safe place theyve lived, but it's still scary for them.

Its not easy work, but its fulfilling work. We do require all staff to observe all HIPAA privacy regulations. And, an accepting, affirming and non-judgement approach toward LGBTQ youth and staff is required.

Full-time and Part-time schedules are available. Bilingual Spanish Strongly Preferred. Most shifts are evenings and weekends, when the children are not in school. Weekends are generally required. We do have awake overnight positions available at some locations. A 2-3 week PAID training (M-F, 10am 6pm) is required.

Brief Description of Job: The children in our residential treatment center have emotional and psychiatric issues. Most have suffered devastating loss through trauma, violence, abandonment, poverty, substance abuses, or abuse. Helping our children get stabilized and stay stabilized is the key to them having a good future. Positions are available in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk.


High Diploma or Equivalent
Prior experience working with children is a strong plus
Valid Drivers License with a satisfactory driving record strongly preferred
