Abundant Life Academy
St. George, Utah, United States
Date Posted: 06/05/2012
Categories: Counseling - Education
Job Type: Full-Time
Abundant Life Academy is a premier Christian Therapeutic Boarding School serving troubled teens and their families. We use a positive peer culture model which allows students to be empowered by learning critical thinking skills, advanced leadership skills, and accountability in a therapeutic environment. We are a milieu therapy program which simply means that all staff are involved at some level working directly with our students--from the maintenance team all the way up to the Executive Director.
We are currently seeking Life Coaches/Mentors. However, we have other positions available as well and opportunities for advancement within our organization with proven commitment and experience. These are full time positions--some salaried, some hourly--and start immediately.
Prospective candidates should possess the following:
--A personal, non-religious, relationship with Jesus and a lifestyle that supports that.
--A heart to work with teens who have made poor choices, have weakened family relationships, and who are entitled, manipulative, and struggle with submission to authority.
--A desire to study, learn and apply a non-traditional therapy style and a willingness to commit to that model. We hire life-long learners.
--A strong "heart-based" work ethic and a call to minister to youth and their families. We do not believe in working you to death in the name of ministry. However, if you are just looking for a job, we may not be the best fit for you.
--Strong communication skills, both written and verbal, and the ability to follow through with parents on a regular basis
--A college degree is preferred.
Applicants must be wiling to relocate. Training will take place in Southern Utah, however, we are relocating the school to Virginia in September.
