Are you an empathetic person who loves helping others through challenges? Are you passionate about providing underserved populations with behavioral healthcare that is dignified, empathetic, and nonjudgmental? Are you a confident leader as well as an excellent listener?
Then come join our team of innovative behavioral healthcare workers who are dedicated to giving hope, building health, and changing lives for those in need. As a Facilitator/Clinician for Project LEARN, your primary task will be leading behavioral health classes onsite at two Santa Clara County jails (Elmwood Correctional Complex, Milpitas, and Santa Clara County Main Jail, Downtown San Jose). As well as for participants from the Reentry community, who have been recently released from jail. These participants are motivated to make positive changes in their lives. By engaging participants in these classes, you will help them develop emotional tools that are universally useful at any point in their lives. These skills can help participants cope with stressors of incarceration, handle emotional issues that arise as they transition back to their communities after incarceration, and prevent a return to criminal behavior in the future. Your work within Project LEARN will help prevent recidivism (i.e., return to incarceration) and improve the health and wellbeing of the participants and our communities.
You will also have the benefit of working with a team of enthusiastic, experienced professionals who will provide clinical supervision to help you grow and will work with you to create a flexible schedule that works for your life.
