Student Services Associate
Location: BISD High School Campuses and TTLM Office, Lake Jackson, TX
Status: Full Time, Ministerial
Compensation: $34,000-36,000 (contingent upon education & experience)
What are we looking for?
We are searching for an experienced, passionate professional to join our team of high-performers. Our team is diligent, fervent, and relentless in serving the members of our community. The Student Services Associate MUST possess the drive, experience, and education to add value to our organization and duly serve our clients.
As part of a collaboration with Brazosport ISD, TTLM facilitates an on-campus mentoring program called Club Belay for local high school students. “Belay” is a rock climbing term which means “to allow to climb freely” and is well-suited to describe our philosophy in working with students. The Student Services Associate will lead purposeful lunch-time club meetings with high school students by teaching meaningful and relevant lessons, which engage students and help facilitate relationships between students and their mentors. Additionally, the Student Services Associate will recruit and train student mentors and manage student/mentor relationships. The Student Services Associate will also aid in the facilitation of Summer Challenge (TTLM’s student, summer, job training program). The services facilitated by the Student Services Associate provide a catalyst for lasting life-change and transition to successful adulthood. The work hours for this position will vary in accordance with school-year, campus needs, and summer programming. This position requires a two-year commitment, with potential for employment beyond two years.
The Student Services Associate will collaborate with volunteer mentors, school personnel, and the TTLM student services team to build life-skills and create a sense of family and community for high school students through Club Belay.
We are looking for someone who is a gifted facilitator and who is motivated by Gospel-centered compassion. Our next Student Services Associate needs to be a natural communicator who enjoys building relationships of significance and who will find energy in helping students overcome roadblocks to their future.
