Job Description:

Description Maryhurst provides treatment programs for severely traumatized children who most often are victims of sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse. Children in our care turn to risk-taking behaviors to cope with their pain. These behaviors can include such actions as running away, truancy, suicidal gesturing, delinquency, and substance abuse. Their issues are further complicated by years of multiple placements in foster care and hospital settings. In fact, prior to their involvement with Maryhurst, any one of our children is likely to have experienced an average of 20 out-of-home placements. We work hard to provide consistency, structure, and love for children. It is because of this philosophy and the hard work of staff and volunteers that our programs are successful. Today Maryhurst provides nine different programs that address the unique needs of more than 600 children and their families. The Youth Counselor is responsible for providing a therapeutic atmosphere within the dorm or group home setting. This is an integral and rewarding role that provides structure, safety and care to severely traumatized children who most often are victims of sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse.

The Youth Counselor may dispense medications as necessary, keep accurate documentation, and attend weekly/monthly meetings.
