Child and Family Mentor

Position: Child and Family Mentor

Hours: Full-time, 40 hours/week, must be able to work some nights and weekends while maintaining 40 hour work week

General Summary of Duties: The Child and Family Mentor will work in partnership with Mobility Mentors in EMPaths' direct service programs. Mobility Mentors work with adults on all aspects of self-sufficiency.  The Child and Family Mentor will work in an intensive, long-term fashion directly with the children and families of participants where they live (which may be at their homes or at EMPaths' family shelters). The work of mentoring includes conducting child and family assessments, identifying useful interventions, developing long term and short term goals, and guiding participants toward appropriate next steps. The Child and Family Mentor will work holistically with families to identify strengths and problem solve around challenges. Goals for children may be around health, social-emotional development, and executive functioning, preparing for independence, or education; while goals for families may be around routines or organization, or improved communication or problem solving techniques.

The Child and Family Mentor will also provide broad expertise to EMPath staff and families around common child and family issues and resources.

The Intergenerational Project is a new expansion of EMPaths' Mobility Mentoring™ (MM) platform to work with each member of a family—parents and kids—together. While MM has the goal of moving low-income women to economic independence, the Intergenerational Project has the additional goal of helping all members of the family move toward a brighter future. Recognizing that the members of a family are strongly interdependent, and that services for families tend to be incredibly siloed, the Intergenerational Project seeks to create alignment toward goals for the family. We know that when parents do better, their kids do better, and vice versa. We seek to capitalize on this to create virtuous cycles for families, wherein improved economic mobility in the parent enforces child educational gains, children’s improved functioning frees up parent bandwidth for goal attainment, and so on

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

  • Knowledge of a wide range of child issues (i.e.: common child health issues, social-emotional development, executive functioning, and education)
  • Knowledge of best practices in the field and connections with systems addressing the aforementioned areas
  • Experience working directly with low-income children and their parents.
  • Ability to connect with and teach to a broad spectrum of learning styles
  • Superior computer skills with solid knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite
  • Excellent organization skills, willingness to report on all aspects of work and analyze efforts for continuous improvement
  • Ability to travel between program sites and participants’ homes within the greater Boston area. Must have license and reliable car.

Educational and Other Requirements:

  •  Bachelor’s Degree and at least two years of experience working with low-income children and/or families is required.
  • Experience in case management, social work, or home visiting is preferred.
  • Experience engaging with child- and family-serving systems in the greater Boston area is preferred
  • Bilingual (Spanish and English) candidates strongly preferred
  • Candidates of color and/or multilingual candidates are strongly encouraged to apply

Physical Demands/Working Conditions: Requires prolonged sitting, some bending, stooping and stretching.  Requires eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity sufficient to operate a keyboard, photocopier, telephone, calculator and other office equipment.  Requires normal range of hearing and eye sight to record, prepare and communicate appropriate reports.  Work is performed in an office environment.
