SummitOaks

From Dr. DeVita (emailed to psyc majors on 3/13):

If you are 21 years old and want a FT or PT job (which could most likely give FT hours in the summer) and are willing to work with difficult adolescents in a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Program (PRTP) . . . then read the rest of this.

Summit Oaks is a PRTP run through Lutheran Social Services.  Summit Oaks is wanting to hire staff to help supervise adolescents (ages 10-17) who often have a history of abuse, neglect, behavioral difficulties, and psychological diagnoses.  These tend to be a difficult group of "kids" to handle, but I know that the Summit Oaks program gives substantial training and I've known a number of Augie students who have worked there or done an internship there successfully.

The open position is for Summit Oaks I (the psyciatric residential program).  Note that jobs at Summit Oaks II (which is a MORE intensive program only for very difficult adolescent females) usually require more experienced applicants or those who have completed their bachelor's degree (graduating seniors could apply now, I suppose, for employment after graduation).

Please visit the Lutheran Social Services website to learn more about the open position and to view the application materials to be sent: www.lsssd.org   Applications should be turned in by March 31st.
