Brightstone Transitions is a residential program seeking to help young adults with Autism live thoughtful and independent lives. At Brightstone Transitions we use a coaching and mentoring model to guide each of our young adults in establishing healthy routines that will lead them to independence.
Brightstone Transitions is currently looking to hire dedicated, creative and hard-working Residential Mentors. The Mentor position is a direct care position, working both 1:1 and in small group settings. As a mentor you have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of our young adults by teaching them healthy daily living routines, establishing independent living skills, and supporting their social and emotional growth. Mentors help clients with learning tasks ranging from budgeting, hygiene routines, peer conflict, family dynamics, job searching and much more.
An ideal candidate can build rapport with our clients and use creative strategies to break down barriers that have previously stalled growth toward independence. Mentors are part of a larger Brightstone team environment and must be able to work collaboratively with clients and other mentors. Successful mentors look for in the moment coaching opportunities and provide real-life and sustainable rationales for clients.
This position does require shifts of 3-4 days on at a time and requires overnight stays. Additionally, all candidates must be able to pass a state background check as well as a motor vehicle record check.
