Job Description :
THE MILL SCHOOLWho We Are.What We Do.Our approach to education is simple. We are committed to providing open, caring and proactive educational and vocational opportunities to young people who often struggle with the day-to-day necessities of life. Every student who attends our program is treated with dignity and respect. We listen to them and behave in ways that let them know that theyve been heard and we collaborate with them to make plans to achieve outcomes that are important to them.
We have very real and very frank conversations that can sometimes be difficult, but we believe that these conversations are necessary for the identification of meaningful outcomes and the development of academic and personal success. We care.The population we serve has been historically unsuccessful in public school settings. Our students are often identified as behavior problems, at risk for failure, emotionally disturbed, or worse. They arrive at our door cynical, combative, with minimal interest in school and little hope for a positive future.
Their educational experiences have been negative, difficult, and rife with broken relationships and conflict, and the services that they have received are typically provided in a reactive and controlling manner. Our methods are different, and based on years of research that weve published in the professional literature and that weve successfully applied in schools around the world. We teach students how to manage themselves, to work on projects and activities that they find useful and interesting, and to integrate these projects into the daily school routines. We are proactive.
Our students have long histories of making poor decisions and we respond with understanding and support. We help them to learn how to make plans and follow their plans, and to honestly evaluate the results of their plans once theyre completed (or not). We realize that each student is an individual with unique needs so we encourage them to be themselves and explore multiple options to create an educational program that will work best. We are collaborative.Our place is a safe haven for our students.
A place that they can use our kitchen make or get a hot meal and as get much as they can eat (and bring home for their families if they need to). Access to a caring ear to listen whenever its needed. The comfort of knowing that no matter how they are feeling or behaving, they are accepted for who they are. We dont restrain kids, we dont call the police when things get difficult.
We work it out together. We understand that everyone has bad days and that no one is at his or her best when having a bad day, so we adjust and adapt and teach the students to do so as well. We help our students to learn how to judge big deals and little deals in a reasonable way, to recognize when they are ready or not ready to take on a task or interaction with another person, and we support them to learn how to respond to life in a positive and pro-social way. We are positive.Were a small program twenty-five students supported by thirteen clinical and educational staff so that we are able to focus on each students interests and ideas in a very personal way.
We are a safe haven to try things out, to fail without feeling like a failure, to learn how to be resilient and successful in ways they never experienced in school before. We believe in our students.We prepare students for life after school by helping them to develop the ability to regulate themselves. We help students learn to be successful in school and in life. As a result, we provide a flexibly integrated school day that includes formal classroom activities, individual projects that are undertaken in the school setting and in the community, vocational activities, and weekly community activities designed to create opportunities to establish positive connections with others.
We are relentlessly optimistic.Its hard work. We have a lot of fun.JOB TITLE: School Social Worker/School ClinicianSCHOOL SOCIAL WORKER/SCHOOL CLINICIAN JOB REQUIREMENTS: A WELL DEVELOPED SENSE OF HUMOR.Interest in working with a diverse student population with difficult behaviorsMasters of Social Work or related field.
