WJS Canada is currently looking for 5 individuals to join our Sumas House team, as casual Residential Child and Youth Workers (including overnight awake residence worker scheduling).

 

Job Reference #SH183-CAS

 

The Program:

The Sumas House Program is designed to accommodate youth that have experienced a history of failure in other programs and group homes. Our services support youth recovering from adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and overcoming other adversity by providing them with housing and trauma-based guidance.

 

We accommodate and support traumatized youth in comfortable and welcoming facilities with twenty four hour staffing. Paired housemates share common areas but each child has his or her own bedroom. We offer a safe environment in a residential and friendly neighbourhood. An open door policy encourages a wandering youth to return at any time.


The Positions and Scheduling:

The Residential Child and Youth Worker (RCYW) provides care to children, youth or adults with moderate to severe behavioural problems in a residential or day program setting in an accredited agency. As key worker for assigned persons served, the RCYW is responsible for overall development and care of those individuals. In conjunction with the individual’s care team, the RCYW assesses physical, psychological, social and developmental needs, and designs and implements individualized personal service plans and plans of care that address and meet those needs. The RCYW also participates in the operation and maintenance of the program. 

 

The Awake Residential Night Worker (ARNW) for this licensed, accredited agency attends to the health, well-being, safety and security of residents and the program site at night, and provides general, non-specific services to clients as required.   This position will be alone during the overnight hours and must feel comfortable working alone, with support from the On-Call Manager, as needed.  Maintains a comfortable and clean living environment. 

 

The positions require union membership with CUPE and must be available to work a variety of shifts such as weekdays, weekends and evening shifts, that could include (but not limited to) scheduling of 0700-1500, 0800-1600, 1300-2100, 1600-2400 and 2400-0800.

 

As an ideal candidate you possess:

  • A diploma or degree in one of the humanities, social work or related field. Other combinations of education and experience may be considered.
  • Minimum of two years recent related experience in child and youth care, or a combination of relevant education and experience.
  • Previous experience with operating a licensed home and trauma informed practice
  • Valid BC Driver’s License and clean driver’s abstract with a reliable, safe vehicle that has appropriate insurance

  • Non-Violent Physical Crisis Intervention Certificate and Conflict Resolution Certificate (or ability to obtain within probation period)
  • Physician’s note confirming suitability, including immunization records and a negative tuberculosis screening test
  • Positive behavior supports experience
