Do you have a desire to help children who have had a difficult beginning? Are you someone who can change your schedule to stay awake during the night and be able to sleep during the day? We need a person who can work well with others because there is another person awake at the same dormitory who will be working with you. This is a treatment center for adolescent boys who are unable to live in a family setting at this time. They sometimes have bad dreams, they sometimes get sick at night. We need very reliable people who are on time and can independently accomplish the tasks set forth for our awake night counselors. We need people who the boys can trust will be attentive. You will need to be able to work with the other person on shift to divide the duties and do your part. This is not just sitting around watching kids sleep, it is a job where you will be assigned tasks to complete. We have two people working each night shift so that they can hold one another accountable to stay awake and to attend to any tasks at hand. We also have cameras that capture intermittent shots of the rooms in the dormitory. We have had people who work this shift for many years because it fits their lifestyle. Some have done this as long as 16 years.
Our center is located in Driftwood, Tx. We are about 20 minutes southwest of Austin. We are about two miles from Dripping Springs.
