(54 days ago)
WJS Canada
Region: Kootenay, Thompson & Okanagan Type: Contract - Full time
Location: Penticton, BC Salary: To be negotiated at time of hire.

We are currently looking for Home Care providers (contracted) in our Individual Placement Program (Youth Justice), for the Penticton area.


Do you love working with youth?

Do you have a desire to make a difference?
Do you want to be part of a dedicated team?

If you answered yes, WJS is looking for YOU!



Under WJS supervision, youth reside with contracted home share providers which include evenings, weekends and holidays. Monday through Friday (7 hours per day) youth attend WJS day programming and participate in various community and program activities with WJS staff.


The Individual Placement Program (IPP) is a therapeutic program in Penticton for court ordered youth whose behaviour shows a need for a greater control and supervision than regular probation supervision can provide, but are not an appropriate candidate for custody.


The Position:

As a contracted home care provider, you will provide structured care, supervision, life skills training and pro-social mentoring for at-risk teens in your own home. Youth will attend the Attendance Program for 7 hours each standard working day (Monday to Friday).


As the home care provider, you will have access to 24 hour on-call support, and ongoing training.


The position will require 24 hour per day availability, however, in normal circumstances, the youth will attend day programming Monday through Friday, for 7 hours per day. 4 days of respite per month is also available.


Suitability of the applicant will be determined through a screening process based on an agency interview and screening, reference checks, submission of required documentation (including a criminal record search on all persons over 18 years of age that reside in the home, current first aid certification and a medical fitness confirmation). All home providers are required to participate in the Safe Home Study process, if not already completed.


Compensation to be determined.


As An Ideal Candidate You Possess:

  • A completed degree / diploma or certificate in one of the humanities, social sciences or related field
  • Experience and knowledge of the challenges associated with at-risk teens / youth
  • Valid CPR/First Aid and Food Hygiene and Sanitation certificates (or will obtain prior to contracting)
  • Valid Non-Violent Physical Crisis Intervention Certificate and Conflict Resolution Certificate
  • Valid BC Driver’s License and clean driver’s abstract with a reliable, safe vehicle that has appropriate insurance
  • Clear TB Screening, physician’s note confirming good health and current immunization record
  • Experience with computers, including knowledgeable operation of standard programs
  • Must own and possess operating experience, with a working printer/scanner/copier that is located in the home
  • Preference for candidates that have successfully completed the Safe Home course.
