Employment

Employment Opportunities

The entire corporation is directed by an Executive Director: Richard Barna, LAADC, a licensed Drug and Alcohol Therapist, who reports to a Board of Directors. One of the seats on the board belong to Rich Barna, while the other eight seats are held by Tahoe Turning Point, Inc. Chief Financial Officer Jody Sayre, and seven local professionals. The corporation hires employees in three primary areas:

 

  • Administration: Executive Director, Chief Financial Officer, Accounting Assistant and Human Resources, Administrative Assistant, and Maintenance Director
  • Social Work/Casework: Residential Supervisor, 2 Marriage & Family Therapists, A marriage & family therapist intern, and 5 Childcare Supervisors
  • Childcare Workers: These are the backbone of the agency. They include counselors, 5 house managers, outdoor specialists and tutors.

In total we maintain approximately 45 full-time employees. We do not use the services of volunteers.

Basically all of our staff are raising children. If you don’t like kids, this isn’t the job for you! Your responsibilities are everything that a good parental figure would provide for a growing teenaged boy. This includes: supervision, meals, cleanliness and hygiene, transportation to events and appointments, teaching sports and related skills, help with schoolwork, teaching lifeskills, assigning chores, building relationships, counseling, guiding, and everything else that is part of being a good parent. Additionally, our staff have some paperwork responsibilities including: daily staff logs, medication logs, behavioral charts, and incident reports. You might also take on some additional responsibilities that are requested by your supervisor. These might include leading groups on certain subjects, facilitating a session, or organize a program or directing a scheduled trip or outing. Each of these will depend on your level of expertise and experience.

For each of our facilities, a certain level of skill and training is very beneficial. Job applicants applying to the Meyers and Heavenly Valley programs should be proficient in leading and directing outdoor adventure type programs. We don’t expect any one staff to be an expert in all fields, but some degree of training and safety knowledge is very helpful. Our outdoor programs include: rockclimbing, skiing, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, kayaking, camping, backpacking, mountain biking and bouldering.

Group Home Work and Shifts

Each staff person works a 54 hour shift over the course of three and one half days. During the shift each staff shares the responsibility of sleeping over at the facility for two nights. The unpaid sleep portion of your shift is for eight hours a night. Should you be called into service for a client or emergency during that time, you are of course paid for your time. The staff sleeping areas are located in a separate staff room (or office with bed).

Pay and Benefits

The pay scale is based on factors such as: degree, experience in residential treatment and added responsibilities.

Starting salary for 54 hours per week is (gross) $ 511.92
(or $2,047.68 per month or $26,620.00 year)

With a bachelor degree the starting pay goes to (gross)  $579.42 weekly
(or $2,317.68 per month or $ 30,130.00 per year)

With a bachelor degree and previous experience in this field starting pay is (gross) $606.42 weekly
(which is 2,425.68 per month or $31,534.00 per year)

Additional raises are available after one, two and four years with this program. Additional raises are also paid for additional responsibilities, such as managing a facility, becoming a caseworker, becoming a tutor or managing our food program.

Benefits include:

 

 

  • Aetna Health Insurance (after three full months of full time service)
  • Dental Insurance (after three full months of full time service)
  • Leave Time (sick, vacation, personal) figured at .06 hours of leave for each hour worked. This is accumulated upon                    employment, but may only be used with pay after three full months of full time employment.
  • All meals while working.
  • Free season ski pass (if you are teaching skiing and/or snowboarding)
  • Free laundry facilities
  • Paid training opportunities (college, seminars, conferences)

You may also take part in our 403(b) retirement program that is entirely staff funded but tax deferred.
