Weekend Manager Position

The Weekend Manager position is full-time (40+ hours per week) and provides direct coaching for the residents.  The position will report primarily to the Residential Manager with the Director of Programs providing guidance when needed.

Although the position is full time, the arrangement of the hours would allow the WM to hold other gainful employment, if it were desired. The Weekend Manager hours are Friday night 5pm through Sunday Morning at 9am, with attendance at the 9am Tuesday morning staff meeting.
