I have great communication skills and work to make sure everyone in the home is aware of expectations. I am able to keep detailed records and progress notes and I am also an efficient manager of household activities. My approach to working with adjudicated youth is to be firm but fair. Residents and supervisors alike have complimented me on always taking time and effort to try to come to an understanding of issues without jumping to conclusions or making accusations. I would love to bring this level of professionalism critical thinking and problem solving to your position of Youth Care Worker at the New Parkland Home for Youth.
