ABOUT THE POSITION:
Our CDS program offers one-on-one support to individuals with disabilities. You and your client will be participating in a lot of fun activities throughout the community. Swimming, ice skating, bicycling, art, music, dance and cooking are just some of the great things you will get to do together. At times it will be just you and your client out in the community together, and sometimes you will join up with other CDS participants and staff for group activities. It is a lively, diverse crowd with a wide range of amazing personalities, interests and skills. If you are interested in: having an exciting and diverse work week, breaking down barriers to community participation for individuals with disabilities and building meaningful, lasting relationships - this job is perfect for you! Shifts are during the day, Monday through Friday and currently require staff to travel to the Oakland/Berkeley area.
