JOB OPENINGS: TEACHER'S ASSISTANT / CHILD CARE WORKER
Have you ever wanted to be part of making a positive change in the world? Here at Greenacre Homes & School we work with kids from ages 6 to 21 teaching life skills, providing daily structure and opportunities for positive engagement with the community. We provide residential care, educational services and a transitional program for boys and young men who have been removed from homes due to a variety of reasons ranging from abuse and neglect to behavioral issues and educational struggle. Please see our website http://www.greenacrehomes.org/ for additional information.
The Greenacre School is looking for motivated people who want to share their life experiences and passions with others in a school setting. Your presence will make positive changes in the lives of our youth. Every day is different, and you will enjoy forming positive relationships and living your life alongside a special group of young men. Grow your skills with our boys. They love to learn from the connections they make with our dedicated staff! No previous experience required, but we do ask that you have a desire to work with children, patience and the ability to make a one-year commitment. Most of our staff choose to stay much longer out of love for this unique job. A clean insurable driving record is also needed to participate in many of the outings and trips we plan.
