"Society may have given up on these kids, and that's where we need to come in. We need to help, and that's what I'm here for." AJ, a Youth Associate at Beloit
"I want to make a positive impact in our kids' lives. That's why I like being here. I'm able to make a difference." Katy, a Youth Specialist at Beloit
If you have a passion for empowering some of Iowa's most vulnerable kids, Lutheran Services in Iowa is looking for you. Join our team at LSI's Beloit Residential Treatment Center in Ames by becoming a full-time, or part time Youth Associate!
Many of the children we serve have experienced trauma or adverse experiences. It's our job and our privilege to empower them toward success.
Youth Associates work directly with the children on campus, providing them with structure and support in their daily lives. Every day, you can give these children with the safe, positive, and therapeutic environment they need to thrive. The Youth Associate's responsibilities include:
Facilitating group and individual sessions
Assisting in daily chores
Completing appropriate documentation, such as daily logs
Providing appropriate activities to the children on our campus
Salary and Benefits
On top of being a family of caring teammates, LSI also offers a competitive salary and benefit package, including a 401(k), paid time off, and health, dental, life, and vision insurance.
This role has the option of earning more than the actual salary. With a few extra 8-hour shifts each month, the person in this role can add thousands of dollars to their paycheck each year!
Candidates must have a high school diploma, or a GED.
This position requires a valid driver's license, auto insurance, a good driving record, and the ability to pass an extensive background check, including checks of the Dependent Adult and Child Abuse registries, the Sex Offender registry, and the criminal history check.
