Extended Family continues to grow and offer programs to hundreds of children each year. To meet the increasing demand, we will be hiring a new Program Leader to begin this spring.  We are looking for someone who is excited to learn new things, dedicated to helping children be successful, and committed to strengthening families who have experienced the incarceration of a loved one.

Extended Family Program Leaders work independently and travel to schools and juvenile diversion facilities in Cherokee, DeKalb, Etowah, and Calhoun counties to lead small groups of children in kindergarten through 12th grades in both our Extended Family for Kids and Extended Leadership Academy programs.  All training is provided by Extended Family staff and no prior experience is necessary.  Program Leaders work approximately 15-20 hours per week during the school year, including traveling to schools, attending staff meetings, and completing ongoing professional training.  All interested applicants must consent to a background check. 

We are eagerly searching for the right person to join our team.  Program Leaders choose the days they work, making this an ideal opportunity for anyone looking for a flexible schedule while gaining experience working with at-risk children.  Compensation includes beginning pay of $10 per hour and paid mileage at the IRS Annual Rate.  Program Leaders enjoy the rewarding experience of making a difference in the lives of the students they meet, while accepting the awesome responsibility of instilling in each child the messages, “It’s not your fault,” “You are not alone,” and, “You matter.”

If you are interested in this fulfilling work, we want to hear from you!  Please contact Executive Director Laure Clemons at laure@extendedfamilyhelp.org.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin.  Additional information about Extended Family and our programs is available on our website at www.extendedfamilyhelp.org.  Become part of our work at Extended Family and help us break the cycle of incarceration in families.
