CAREERS

Our facility is structured to be a therapeutic setting, providing safety and respect to all residents.  Our staff is chosen based on their experience, skills and abilities to be positive role models and to provide the support and direction needed by the program participants.  

 

We are looking for energetic, creative, and responsible adults who have a desire to make a difference to join our team here at STARS.  An ideal candidate will show initiative in building authentic relationships with healthy boundaries and will be motivated to help our youth by giving compassionate care around accountability. Any out-of-home placement is traumatic, especially for young adults; so being empathetic and trauma informed is critical to the job. 

 

Most importantly, if you come to work with us at STARS, you will be joining a team. The success of this program relies on our staff being able to work together and thrive in a group setting, in order to role-model team building strategies to our residents; so that they, in turn, can learn and master this fundamental and critical life skill.
