Overview

Are you looking for flexibility in your work schedule?  Are you interested in getting additional training without the commitment of a regular part-time or full-time schedule?  Do you want to make a difference helping teenage girls strive to make healthy changes in their lives?    Then we have a fantastic opportunity for you!

 

Nexus Glen Lake, a small intensive residential treatment program located in Minnetonka, is looking for Youth Care Professionals to fill in on open shifts when regularly scheduled staff are out.   (Note:  What you might call a Float Residential Counselor, Youth Counselor, Mental Health Specialist, Mental Health Assistant, or Behavioral Technician, we call on-call Youth Care Professionals, or YCPs.)

 

We have day, evening, or overnight shifts on every day of the week.  We let you know when open shifts come up and you let us know your availability.  You can pick up more shifts or fewer shifts, so it’s easy to flex your work hours to accommodate other jobs, activities, and interests.  The only requirement is that you work an average of at least 24 hours each month.

 

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Competitive pay (starting at $14/hr with additional compensation awarded based upon education and experience!).
  • You control your schedule. Work the shifts you want; pass on the shifts you don’t.
  • Participate in additional training opportunities. You’ll gain both experience and knowledge!
  • Earn money making a powerful impact on the lives of the young women in the program.

  • Mentoring and supervising youth’s daily activities and behavior according to established guidelines and procedures;
  • Participating with coworkers as a team on implementing treatment plans and therapeutic services;
  • Ensuring client safety and collaborating with coworkers to maintain an environment that is positive, respectful, clean and therapeutic;
  • Planning and participating in off-campus client activities and assisting in the transportation of clients for home visits, doctor appointment, planned recreational activities, etc.; and
