Forest Ridge is a Residential Treatment Facility located just outside of Estherville, Iowa. We are looking for people who care about helping high-risk kids make real changes in their lives. Our students are young women, 13 to 18 years old, and are working through issues such as aggression, mental illness, substance abuse, sexual exploitation, and what life could look like outside if gang involvement. Each student who successfully completes their treatment program has the opportunity to positively affect their family, peer group and community. If you watch the news and wonder, “What can I possibly do?” This is it.

As a Youth Counselor, our students need you to be a Solid Object:
• You are someone who shows up every day, ready and willing to help them.
• You don’t bring drama or your own personal issues to work.
• You will hold them accountable when they don’t want you to, and you’ll forgive them when they mess up.
• You are able to remain calm in stressful situations and are always focused on moving them forward in their program.
• You are a patient person. In our setting patience means you are willing to have the same conversation, help them through the same situations several times over until they are able to move forward.
• You are committed to making a difference.
• Everything you do here matters; your presence, your patience, your character, and your professionalism.
We are currently hiring for A Shift (6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) and B Shift (2:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.)

Our minimum job requirement is a High School Diploma or GED. We value higher education, and are actively looking for individuals who hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work, Criminal Justice, Education and Psychology. We are eager to benefit from your education, passion, and ideas.

We have some unique job benefits including free staff housing, free meals during your shift, and Daily Pay if you need it. Our health insurance is exceptional, and we offer two different packages to meet the needs of our employees. We also offer vision, dental and 401K. If you join our team you are eligible to receive a $750 Sign On Bonus, distributed throughout your first year of employment.

This work and our students will change you. If you are #readytowork come join our team, we can’t wait to meet you!
