FamilyMeans is recruiting 1 creative, energetic, adaptable person to work with children and teens this summer at our Cimarron and Landfall Youth Development program sites in Washington County. You will be part of AmeriCorps’ Emergency Response Initiative, a statewide initiative to meet critical community needs related to COVID-19.

Our youth programs serve a majority minority youth population, primarily Latinx, so candidates who share cultural or lived experiences, and have bi-lingual fluency, are especially encouraged to apply.

 

Primary Duties:

  • Develop and lead a summer reading program for youth ages 5-11;
  • Help guide middle and high school youth in charting their postsecondary futures;
  • Contribute to activities that further our mission of equipping youth to learn, thrive, connect and contribute throughout their lives.

 

Training will be provided through AmeriCorps and FamilyMeans. On-site supervision by FamilyMeans staff.

The position requires 35 hours of work a week between June 6 and August 14. Public transit does not serve one site. Reliable transportation is needed.

 

As part of the Emergency Response Initiative, AmeriCorps will provide:

  • A stipend of $750 every two weeks
  • Individual health insurance (monthly premium 100% paid)
  • An additional $1,311 for tuition or student loans

With a tight turnaround, time is of the essence. In order to begin serving in June, candidates need to apply by May 19. Please share this information in your networks and urge others to apply!
