Yad B’Yad is a uniquely inclusive touring program that takes mainstream high school students together with young adults with special needs on a tour of Israel. The program for staff begins with a two day training, followed by a high school orientation in The Powell House in Old Chatham, NY. This year there are two trips- one to Israel and one to Europe/Israel. Your responsibilities will include caring for our Yachad members physically and emotionally, and mentoring our high school students. In addition, you may be assigned to some other jobs that will enhance our trip. Staff for this position must be a minimum of two years post high school.
Yachad offers a variety of camper programs at various sleepaway camps, including Morasha, Mesorah, Nesher, Shoshanim, Kesher, Chaverim and Moshava. We are looking for counselors who enjoy going to a camp and working with Yachad members. Yachad members at these programs range in age from 9- 21 and have a variety of needs- both physical and emotional. Your responsibilities will include caring for our Yachad campers and facilitating inclusion (or mainstreaming) with the mainstream campers. Staffing ages differ for these programs. Applicants for Moshava, Mesorah, Kesher, Chaverim, Shoshanim and Nesher can be finishing their senior year in high school and older, while a limited number of staff for Morasha can be finishing their senior year but majority will be one year post high school or older.
This innovative program allows individuals with disabilities to become full staff members in a typical camp setting. We provide them with jobs at various sleepaway camps (Camps Morasha, Moshava, Lavi, and Mesorah) or day camp (Moshava Ba’Ir New Jersey, Moshava Ba’Ir Toronto) where they get the experience of working at a job and the satisfaction of being part of a team.
We are looking for patient and upbeat job coaches who will act as a counselor/job coach within our vocational programs. Responsibilities will include overseeing the Yachad workers when they are at their job helping them achieve their vocational goals, in addition to facilitating the Yachad workers’ inclusion in camp’s social/recreational programming.
Yachad has a vocational program at the Moshava Ba’Ir New Jersey (MBNJ) and Moshava Ba’Ir Toronto (MBT) day camp. Staff for this program typically work from 8:30 AM until 4:30 PM daily and then return to their own home. There are occasional evening staff meetings and extra curricular activities that require staff to attend as well.
Staff for vocational programs are typically at least one year post high school but it is open for seniors in high school to apply as well.
Updated as of 11/12/2013- Due to overwhelming response, we are no longer accepting applications from females to be staff on Yachad Getaway. Limited male positions still available. Thank you!
This two week program generally takes place the last week of June and the first week of July. The Getaway program takes place in our famous “Getaway House” where Yachad members have the chance to take a relaxing vacation without the pressure of a bus tour. Responsibilities for this program would include care for our Yachad participants, along with various technical jobs. Staff for this program need to be finishing high school or older.
PLEASE NOTE: All staff who receive salaries will be paid at the conclusion of the summer.
