Paid Mentoring Position Available
Part/Time, $11.00 per hour.
Looking for a bright, open-minded, empathetic and responsible support worker who is immersed in goth culture. It doesn’t matter how you look but it is essential that you are able to connect with an amazing and sensitive young man, with a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome who at times has felt like an outsider. He is seeking a companion and guide that can help him connect with the goth world, make friends and meet people. He is interested in gaming culture and would appreciate spending time with someone with similar interests.
The schedule would be part-time, starting at two evenings a week from approximately
5-8PM. This schedule may increase if it is felt to be mutually beneficial.
You will be required to fill out a daily checklist which will be submitted monthly and to maintain good communication with the agency (Job Path) and family. No experience is required but you must be a caring and committed individual with a genuine desire to support and help others. Training and support will be provided.
