Help Us Change Lives: Auberle Seeks 412 Youth Zone Coach for Transition Age Youth
Auberle is a nationally recognized, award winning human service organization that serves thousands of children and families each year. For more than 60 years we have helped troubled children and their families heal themselves. Auberle’s staff is comprised of passionate individuals who are committed to finding the most innovative ways to solve our community’s most difficult problems. Youth aging out is a critical population in our society that has suffered from extremely poor outcomes. Allegheny County Department of Human Services (DHS) decided to make a significant change in its services for youth aging out of the system, ages 16-24. Auberle was selected to administer all aspects of service delivery to this population, all through a One Stop Center based in Wood Street Commons in downtown Pittsburgh. We envision that this new, innovative approach will become the national standard.
We are currently seeking a Youth Zone Coach to build strong, consistent relationships with youth, understand their needs, goals and aspirations. You will navigate all services with the youth so that outcomes are achieved and use the partners and services provided at the center for engagement and youth success. Youth Coaches serve as mobile outreach to provide supports and opportunities for youth who are not currently living in Allegheny County but plan to return and those youth who are not able to travel to the center. Youth Coaches promote the center and its services and activities to all eligible transitioning youth in the County.
The 412 Youth Zone offers comprehensive, welcoming and youth-oriented services and space for transition age youth with current or past connections to child welfare. The 412 Youth Zone helps youth to feel welcomed, safe and supported while offering the services and connections to help them face the challenges of adulthood.
