Roommate Mentors
Where What You Do Really Matters for a Lifetime!
Posted March 30, 2017

DO YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR LIVING AND WORKING WITH YOUTH?
ARE YOU CARING, COMPASSIONATE AND ABLE TO BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIPS?
DO YOU WANT TO “WORK” WITH YOUTH IN A TRULY COMPREHENSIVE WAY?

About: In the Solo With Supports (SWS) Program, youth entering the program are matched to live with Roommate Mentors. Mentors provide the experience of living in a shared space as well as in-home supports to young people who are developing identity, relationships, boundaries, personal expectations, dreams, hobbies, practical skills, community awareness, ambition, vocation, emotional wellness, etc. The intention is to best support them while they transition into adulthood.

Transitioning to adulthood can be particularly challenging for youth who have experienced atypical family structures, hurdles in emotional wellness, lack of nurturing experiences and some developmental roadblocks to name a few. In Solo With Supports, we begin this transition with building trust and relationships, closely followed by empowerment so that youth are open to learning other life skills and living skills. Roommate Mentors are an important part of the team as the living environment provides the nurturance for the journey ahead. Mentors are trained and supported to co-create with the youth, a new physical and relational environment.

During the time that the youth resides in your home, Roommate Mentors will be open to mentoring the youth as well as learning from the youth. Living skills are not always taught directly but often learned indirectly through experience and practice. Providing opportunities to learn and practice these skills in a nurturing environment is of great benefit to our youth.

Our program works with youth up to 24 years of age and their families. We are looking for mentors to provide long-term, short-term and respite placements for our youth. Placements can be a year or longer and respite is provided by Roommate Mentors on short-term basis.

Role & Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with the Supervisor to develop an understanding of:
    • The various systems that intersect the lives of the young people in our program
    • The developmental, experiential, emotional and trauma based challenges common to young people we serve
  • Participate in trainings provided and actively self-educate in areas pertinent to your work
  • Critically engage with your team to identify what your mentoring style is, your strengths and youth you are best suited for
  • Upon being matched with a youth:
    • Create a welcoming, nurturing and collaborative environment with the youth in your home
    • Liaise and consult with relevant team members, the youth’s families and community agencies.
    • Co-develop next steps with the youth and the rest of the team
    • Mindfully navigate relationship building to create an open atmosphere for teaching life skills and living skills
    • Be informed of the challenges and strengths that are being presented in the home
    • Provide supervision where required
      o Participate in ongoing meetings with the various members to assess progress and next steps.
      o Where required, transport youth to and from school, appointments, activities, and workshops.
      o Submit monthly documentation relevant to the youth in your home as prescribed by the SWS Program

Qualification and Education Requirements: Applicants are preferred to have a relevant college diploma or university degree in Social Work or Child and Youth Care and a minimum of 2 years of experience working with children, youth and families.
Successful completion of all the steps in our Screening and Home Assessment process, as well as reference checks is required.

Preferred Skill Set:

  • Being able to work with a team.
  • Offer effective oral and written communication skills.
  • Experience with developmental and mental health related hurdles.
  • Being patient.
  • Being able to deal with unexpected problems.
  • Being confident.
  • A non-judgmental attitude.
  • A working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel (or some basic training will be provided)
