BCS partners with people to overcome obstacles on their pathway toward self-determination. Since 1866, founded on the principle of neighbors helping neighbors, BCS has worked in neighborhoods impacted by systemic poverty. Today, we continue to strengthen communities by fostering the educational success of children, the leadership development of youth, the employment and housing stability of adults, the advancement of individuals living with disabilities, and the empowerment of seniors and families. Our work is rooted in the struggle for social justice and through action and advocacy we commit to shine a light on barriers that perpetuate inequitable systems as a part of the collective effort to ignite change. BCS serves more than 20,000 people in 42+ programs through the work of approximately 400 staff and 900 volunteers.
Since March 2020, we have witnessed the compounding consequences of social isolation for children/youth with regard to education and mental health. Our children and youth have experienced devastating learning loss and trauma against the backdrop of the pandemic. We are seeing higher rates of incidents relating to mental health challenges, frustrations from educational struggles and behavioral concerns in all of our after-school programs. Young people have fallen deeply behind in their academics and continue to try to process the trauma experienced in the last two years. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) resources and staff training play a critical role in working with children, youth and parents. Trauma and grief/loss have been profound in our communities and with the families we serve. More than ever, specialized child/youth mental health services are needed to support students through this post-pandemic transition and return to normalcy. The stigma of mental health carries its own set of challenges in our communities; the ability to offer on-site clinical support will lessen the burden placed on struggling families to find support elsewhere.
With the goal of assisting with the overall coordination and implementation of BCS’s mission, vision and strategic plan to include the implementation of youth goals around STEAM, SEL and Youth Leadership Development in the Education and Youth Division (EYD) the Clinical Supervisor/Field Social Worker will:
BCS and Turning Point require that all employees entering the workplace be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 unless an exemption is granted as a medical or religious accommodation.
BCS is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities
