Dear Director Hanson,
As a highly skilled Youth Counselor, I read your posting for a new Youth Counselor with interest. My experience aligns well with the qualifications you are seeking at Care One Youth Services, in particular my role as a Youth Counselor at Sequoia Counseling Center, and I am certain I would make a valuable addition to your organization.
With more than nine years’ experience as a Youth Counselor, I am adept in documentation, counseling, and goal planning. Moreover, while my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate problem solving and time management abilities, I excel at:
- Meeting with youth and families to gather information and establish parameters.
- Supporting individual exploration of deep-seated issues and negative behaviors.
- Modeling positive behaviors and introducing coping techniques.
- Leading activities for youth groups to provide positive experiences.
In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I have a solid educational foundation and a passion for youth support. I am extremely enthusiastic about Care One Youth Services’ focus on dynamic and environment-focused care approaches and would welcome the opportunity to contribute to your continued success in helping local youth develop coping strategies, improve behaviors, and maximize all opportunities for growth and realization of each individual’s potential.
Please review my attached resume for additional details regarding my expertise and career achievements. I will follow up to request an appointment to discuss how my experience and background meet your needs.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
