Residential Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Shelburne, ON18 February 2014
A typical day at work: Participate in daily student academic, recreational and therapeutic 
activities. Assist with keeping youth on track regarding their expectations and program.

I've learned in order for the program to work the management and staff need to work together and consistently communicate, so that everyone is on the same page. The program is very structured and the expectations need to be consistent. This provides a safe environment for the youth to flourish and grow. This is one of the reasons the program at Pine River is successful.

Its a long process for many of the youth so its important to remember that developing a connection with them may take time. Trust is an issue for many of them and it take time to gain their trust. The hardest part of the job is that it does take time and everyone's journey is different.

The most enjoyable part of the job is playing a positive part in the youth's journey and watching them grow into confident, happy young adults.
Pros
excellent staff, rewarding job, every day is different, enjoy the variety and challenge
Cons
when your short staff
