Please check back soon for full-time position opportunities.
Regardless of whether or not there are any current full-time job postings/openings, we always accept resumes from exceptional people who are willing and able to work for Chimo on an hourly or casual basis in the following positions:
DO YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR LIVING AND WORKING WITH YOUTH?
ARE YOU CARING, COMPASSIONATE AND ABLE TO BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIPS?
DO YOU WANT TO “WORK” WITH YOUTH IN A TRULY COMPREHENSIVE WAY?
In the Solo With Supports (SWS) Program, youth entering the program are matched to live with Roommate Mentors. Mentors provide the experience of living in a shared space as well as in-home supports to young people who are developing identity, relationships, boundaries, personal expectations, dreams, hobbies, practical skills, community awareness, ambition, vocation, emotional wellness, etc. The intention is to best support them while they transition into adulthood.
Transitioning to adulthood can be particularly challenging for youth who have experienced atypical family structures, hurdles in emotional wellness, lack of nurturing experiences and some developmental roadblocks to name a few. In Solo With Supports, we begin this transition with building trust and relationships, closely followed by empowerment so that youth are open to learning other life skills and living skills. Roommate Mentors are an important part of the team as the living environment provides the nurturance for the journey ahead. Mentors are trained and supported to co-create with the youth, a new physical and relational environment.
During the time that the youth resides in your home, Roommate Mentors will be open to mentoring the youth as well as learning from the youth. Living skills are not always taught directly but often learned indirectly through experience and practice. Providing opportunities to learn and practice these skills in a nurturing environment is of great benefit to our youth.
Our program works with youth up to 24 years of age and their families. We are looking for mentors to provide long-term, short-term and respite placements for our youth. Placements can be a year or longer and respite is provided by Roommate Mentors on short-term basis.
Work closely with the Supervisor to develop an understanding of:
