Job Summary

Mentors, also called Direct Care Staff and Teen Mental Health Staff, are the backbone of Shelterwood’s relational approach. Time and time again, parents of Shelterwood graduates tell us that their teen’s Mentors made all the difference in their transformation. Mentors make a profound impact on the teens in their care. As they work with teens, Mentors lay groundwork for social, academic and spiritual growth of the students. Shelterwood is not designed to simply create behavioral change, but to cultivate deep heart change and set our students up to succeed in life. For Mentors, this is not just a job or occupation. This is a calling.
