Your work at Telos is not just a job, it is a mission. This is changing people’s lives and helping them achieve great things. Your contribution is vital and it takes hard work and grit. Below are core things to consider:
The staff are the glue that hold our campus together. The Activities are often done in a team or group setting for the younger campus and more individual or smaller groups on the older campus. Because there is much to do, staff need to be organized and on top of all the moving parts. Activities off-campus are plentiful and fun to attend. Activities include things like biking, swimming, hikes, snowboarding, skateboarding, parks, trails, camping and much more. Each day follows a strict routine but is very rewarding as you get used to it.
YES. You are highly responsible for our students. If they get unsettled and do something they should not, then you need to “think like a mom” and help them reason it out. Once this is handled you will be responsible for charting (recording) the problem for other staff who may be coming on-shift after you as well as the treatment team and leadership.
Telos is not for everyone. THIS IS IMPORTANT…If you struggle with severe mental health needs, this is not the role for you. If you do not have a heart-at-peace then this is not a role for you. If you anger quickly or struggle with severe anxiety, this is not a role for you. If you don’t have patience for others, this is not a role for you.
If you want to make a difference for amazing students and feel you have the capacity to care and appreciate them, this may be a job for you.
