Description of Duties
This is a position at the Monroe County Department of Human Services located at a specialized secure detention (SSD) facility for pre-trial and post-sentencing detention of youth who are alleged or sentenced “adolescent offenders.” The facility is part of the Monroe County Children’s Detention Center. Duties involve performing intensive case management activities for youth who are detained at the facility. Duties are performed within well-defined laws and guidelines and under stressful conditions and can include physically de-escalating volatile situations. The facility operates on a 24/7 basis. This position differs from the higher-level Senior Youth Detention Caseworker by virtue of the lack of providing oversight to staff. The employee reports directly to and works under the general supervision of the Social Work Supervisor – Children’s Center or other higher-level staff member. Does related work as required.
Graduation from high school or possession of an equivalency diploma plus graduation from a regionally accredited or New York State registered college or university with a Bachelor’s degree plus two (2) years paid full time or its part time equivalent experience working with youth within a counseling or treatment-based setting, or equivalent qualifications as approved through a New York State Office for Children and Family Services waiver.
NOTE: The minimum qualifications are mandated by the Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York Title 9 Section 180-3.11(d)(ii).
