ABOUT NEW HAVEN RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER
New Haven is a residential treatment center for adolescent girls
ages 14-18 and their families. We have two campuses in Utah:
Spanish Fork and Saratoga Springs. We provide the teens we serve
with residential treatment and advanced academics in a comfortable,
home-like environment. We specialize in complex issues including
traumatic stress, family problems, relationship issues, depression,
anxiety, self-harm, suicidal ideation, attachment, eating
disorders, substance abuse, and personality disorders. Our expert
therapists facilitate healing by focusing on the family.
We value our Youth Mentors and understand that, without them,
there would be no one to implement our programs and help our
residents move toward healing. This is why we provide our staff
with a fun workplace, two company parties each year, and meals
during their shift.
We offer a starting wage of $12.00-$13.00 /hour with quarterly
bonuses and raises. There are many opportunities for advancement if
you're interested in sticking with us and getting leadership
experience as well!
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A YOUTH MENTOR
So, what do our youth mentors do? Is it just glorified
babysitting? Nope. Please read on!
The day-to-day life of a Youth Mentor can be extremely
rewarding, but with any reward comes challenges. A typical shift
includes assisting the girls with their day-to-day activities. You
monitor and care for the physical, emotional, and social needs of
New Haven's students. Most of your time is spent participating in
activities with our teen students. This can include going to the
movies or museums, day hiking, river rafting, camping, and more!
While participating in these fun activities, you ensure that our
students are being safe with themselves and those around them.
Because of all the time you spend with these teens, you are able to
develop healthy and meaningful staff/student relationships as they
grow and progress within the program.
You will also have many other responsibilities including teacher
aide duties, attending groups with students, ensuring the safety of
students, and maintaining boundaries. You provide supervised
therapeutic services to adolescents with behavioral and emotional
difficulties for the purpose of meeting the goals of each teen's
treatment plan. You have the opportunity to work alongside the
therapists to create and implement interventions.
