Company: Boys Town
Location: Omaha
Posted on: September 15, 2020

Job Description:

At Boys Town, our top priority is the health and safety of our youth, patients and employees. With news of the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), Boys Town is taking measures to ensure we continue to protect those in our workplace and in our care.

For candidates:

We are leveraging our digital capabilities to ensure we can continue to recruit and train top talent at Boys Town. As your application progresses, you may be asked to use one of our digital tools to help you through the interviewing process. Our Talent Acquisition Team will be with you every step of the way should you have any questions.

For our employees:

We are continuing to educate our workforce on how to stay safe; restricting unnecessary travel and face-to-face meetings; and canceling or postponing fundraising events in order to minimize the risk that comes with bringing large groups of people together. We have created an online community called #PraiseItOn to recognize the good going on in our community and thank our workers that are at the forefront of taking care of children, families and patients.

Thank you for exploring our career opportunities at Boys Town.

In a career as Family-Teaching Partners, part of giving youth a second chance is exposing them to new experiences. Youth come to the Boys Town Family Home Program for a variety of reasons – family issues, abuse, neglect, abandonment, involvement in the juvenile justice system. You come in by presenting them with opportunities in education and school involvement, giving them their first happy Thanksgiving or teaching them how faith can help them heal. We strive to give Boys Town Kids the fulfilling lives they deserve.
