IDEAL CANDIDATE: Center for People With Disabilities (CPWD) is looking for a Youth Independent Living Advisor! The ideal candidate would be someone with disability experience (either has a disability or has worked with people with disabilities) who loves to work with young adults. They are in a critical time of navigating away from parental protection and support, and toward independent living. You would play an important role, not only assisting them to work toward independence, but also sensitively navigating family dynamics at times. You would come with a lot of enthusiasm and encouragement for these young people, and truly believe they can succeed regardless of ability level. We are looking for someone who wants to be a trusted and reliable catalyst for change in the lives of these youth. We welcome your creative ideas for activities and services, and also ask that you bring a level of flexibility – as youth are often very busy with their school, family, and social commitments. If this sounds like work that excites you, please read the job requirements and apply as direct below.
SUMMARY: This position will focus on providing employment and Independent Living services to youth with various disabilities ages 14 to 24, but may also work with consumers of all ages, as needed. Services may include: individual and systems advocacy, Independent Living skills training, information and referral services, and peer support to individuals and groups of youth and/or parents of youth with disabilities. Though primarily based out of CPWD’s Boulder or North Metro Office, the Youth ILA will provide services to all consumers within all of CPWD’s covered counties. The individual in this position will serve as a role model and mentor for people with disabilities within the community, and maintain positive and effective relationships with CPWD staff and partner agencies.
