Health & Mental Health | Programs/Services
As the first Director of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), you will report to the Executive Director and be primarily responsible for creating a curriculum and setting the direction of our nascent SEL program, maintaining a focus on how to best support the young adults that we serve. You will also be tasked with providing direct service to students via one-on-one counseling and check-ins, as well as facilitating group sessions; referring students out to external resources as needed; and eventually supervising social work interns to deliver professional support services to all Access Opportunity students.
To be successful in this role, you must be an experienced and confident social work professional with strong leadership and relationship-building skills. You must be skilled in clinical crisis intervention but also comfortable with contributing to strategic conversations about program growth and support. You must have a track record of creating and fostering positive relationships with a diverse set of counseling and community resources. Ideally, you have experience working with diverse youth and are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion within your practice.
