NFI Massachusetts, Inc., a non-profit human services agency, iscurrently seeking a full-time Second Shift Youth Counselor Assistant Supervisor for our IRTP location in Worcester, MA.
“Located at the Worcester Recovery Center & Hospital, NFI’s two, fifteen bed IRTPs are state-wide residential programs for adolescents who have a serious mental illness and/or severe emotional and/or behavioral disturbances. The two programs provide vigorous treatment in a locked setting for youth who are unable to be safely treated in a less restrictive setting. The programs are highly resourced with highly trained and credentialed staff which include child psychiatry, nursing, occupational therapy, clinical services, in-house education and therapeutic milieu. Youth are referred by the Department of Mental Health (DMH). *The program is structured in a trauma-informed, family focused environment.* Both the D1 and D2 units utilize peer mentors as a support to the youth placed; peer mentors are staff that have lived experience in program placement and have gone on to fulfill their educational and professional goals, and work part time supporting youth at the IRTP on the path to recovery. The therapeutic milieu and educational day programming are designed to foster success after transition out of the program.”
We are looking for a dedicated and qualified candidate with strong leadership skills to supervise, monitor, coach and mentor program staff and youth. The goal is to create a therapeutic milieu and to ensure the safety and security of our clients.
- Qualified candidates will possess a Bachelor’s degree and/or two or three years of experience working with similar populations.
