Duties may include:

- Building relationships with local guidance counselors, therapists and community groups
- Maintaining connections with interested families from first contact until first day at our program

- Flexibility: We are currently in our first year of business and thus things are constantly changing. It is important that the candidate for this position is flexible enough to adapt to these changes and is especially receptive to feedback on their work

- Caring: Many families that come to us having been struggling through traditional school and it is important that the candidate demonstrates kindness and understanding for those experiences without judgement.
