Employment and Internships
If you are energetic, engaging, and eager to work in the field with families of all cultures and backgrounds, Family Services is looking for you to join our team.
We have two positions available that require highly self-motivated individuals who can also function effectively in a team environment. You will have an opportunity to use the communication and facilitation skills you have acquired to implement parent education programs/workshops. You will recruit and assist parents in becoming enlightened about their parenting role such that they make a lasting impact on the lives of their children. We are looking for people who can facilitate, communicate, and collaborate with parent groups in school and community settings. If you have managed to find a balance between being empathetic with clients of all backgrounds and pairing that empathy with effective decisions that achieve positive outcomes, you will fit well on our team. Both positions are currently open; each at two different locations.
Applicants for both positions must possess a valid driver’s license, reliable transportation and auto insurance as these are necessary to meet the job requirements. Qualified candidates should e-mail their resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate the position for which you are applying in the subject line.
