One of the most rewarding jobs I have ever worked. Very much a supportive family atmosphere. PQ's model is very successful and its because of the great staff who show up invested and full of care. I love the fact that you can give feedback to your co-workers in a healthy way at the end of shift. I was amazed coming from a Summer Camp background with limited boundaries or structure to the opposite and everything having an "intention" behind it. Land, Cooking, Groups, Reflection, all were amazing resources to provide healthy outlets and much needed processing for these students. . They refer to them as gaining "tools". and by the last phase, "Ohana" you watch them use these tools in healthy ways. Calling groups to express emotions, gardening their aggression away instead of escalating themselves, taking on rolls, ownership, learning identity and independence (the list goes on). As staff, you learn your own tools to be successful and your emotional investment drives you from the early morning to night. Loved the field work at PQ, not really much that compares.
