As a Core Program Supervisor in Bakersfield, California, you will be supervising a team of direct care staff providing supportive housing and case management services to foster youth. As a trauma-informed care provider, you will play a supportive role for youth overcoming unfortunate circumstances. You will use reflective listening, a mixture of empathy, guidance, and assertiveness to activate our youths' resiliency that allows them to thrive despite adversity. You are a positive professional and mentor, responsible for fostering a team-based work environment, maintaining a sense of calm and order with young adults who often have not had either in their lives. You understand the developmental needs of young adults testing out their newfound independence, and that there is growth potential in making mistakes.
As part of the team-based approach, you’ll have the ability to shadow those you supervise to provide in-the-moment modeling, coaching, and feedback. As a way to provide support to young adults in times of need, you will have the opportunity to step in and do some coaching yourself. You will foster and nurture community partnerships to build a network of support for at-risk youth. You will be responsible for program budgets and guiding financial reconciliation, but the bulk of your time will be spent supporting your team. You will have a direct impact on the success of the program by providing training to your team, mitigating client issues, and being a resource to your team. You will also manage the team's ability and willingness to support quality program compliance.
In our team-based setting, you’ll work with a group of in-house and community-based professionals who share your dedication to making a difference in our community. You’ll be supported as well as provide support to others.
Aspiranet supports your success at each step. You’ll gain valuable in-house and external training to support your success in your role. This is an excellent opportunity to further your career with the ability to advance throughout the organization once you’ve developed additional skills. There are opportunities for advancement, both locally and state-wide.
