Gave one star for these reasons--
Positives: You'll work with youth that really need a caring adult in their lives, the benefits are pretty nice. Excellent CARE and TCI training for two weeks. Most if not all of our peers were lovely people.
Negatives: Administration at this program will tell you what you need to hear but not necessarily the truth, burn out from non-stop work is high in the TC position. Several homes have mold. Paperwork, Dr. appointments, outbursts/behaviors, meetings, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and car maintenance had us working 85 hours (on average) each week. Youth are not in school for two weeks several times each year. Support staff is difficult to get.
Ask to speak with a TC couple that has been doing the job for at least three years.
pay is minimum wage per hour
