Residential Counselor/House Parent

Job posting
Closing date: 1 June 2019

Are YOU ready to make a difference in the life of a child? Join our Team today!

Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona helps good kids in tough situations beat the odds. By providing family-like homes in safe neighborhoods, a first-class education in top-rated schools, and comprehensive college preparation, we empower children of poverty and potential to triumph over their circumstances, become successful, and grow up to give back to their communities.

As a Residential Counselor at our Girls Hope Home, you'll provide the most fundamental need of all.  You'll help build the loving and supportive family dynamic and home environment that all children need to feel secure.  We are looking for a team member who is eager to learn, responsible, and dependable.  Ideal candidates will be comfortable working with teenagers, and will have the ability to enforce structure that encourages growth, productivity, and fun!  We are currently hiring both LIVE IN and LIVE OUT Residential Counselors.

You and other committed staff members will:

  • Create an environment of achievement by guiding our scholars in college preparation and educational excellence;
  • Provide for our scholars' physical, emotional, and spiritual needs;
  • Teach social and independent living skills;
  • Help provide new opportunities and activities;
  • Build relationships with families and volunteers;
  • Model a healthy and responsible lifestyle by providing discipline, organization, and compassion.

Qualified applicants will be at least 21 years of age; hold a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college in social work, psychology, counseling, education, or a related field; and will have experience in serving a similar population equal to at least one-year full-time work. A valid driver's license is also required.  Bilingual in Spanish and English a plus! 

The LIVE IN position requires living in the home with the youth, so be sure you can make that commitment before responding.  Live-in staff members receive private, furnished living quarters and meals at no cost.

Employees are eligible for a competitive compensation and benefits package including group medical and dental coverage, 401(k) retirement savings plan, tuition reimbursement, life insurance, long-term disability coverage, 125 Flex Benefit plan; and the chance to change the lives of children who need it.
