Descrição

Join the team at The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School, featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and on 60 minutes for its revolutionary teacher salaries and its outstanding results. TEP aims to achieve educational equity for students from historically underserved communities by utilizing world-class teachers and social workers, while re-imagining the education profession as a place in which individuals prioritize their own growth as experts and community leaders. 

About the Role

Applicants will be eligible for Early Childhood Social Work roles (Kindergarten, 1st Grade) and Elementary School Social Work roles (2nd Grade to 4th Grade).

Social Workers at The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School serve as the primary leaders of mental health services for TEP students and families, design and implement (proactive and preventative) Social Work programs that promote social and emotional health, and respond to day-to-day student issues and unanticipated crises. Each Social Worker at The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School focuses their efforts on the students, families, and teachers of one specific cohort.

In this role, you will serve as the Social Worker for one TEP cohort, then will move up with this cohort of students throughout their time at TEP until they graduate 4th grade! This is an amazing opportunity for an experienced and creative social work clinician who thrives in an autonomous environment, is passionate about social justice and child/family work, and is seeking to form long-lasting relationships with students and families as they navigate the road from Kindergarten through adolescence.

Early Childhood Social Workers will work in vibrant and colorful spaces that reflect the learning and development that takes place in Kindergarten and 1st grade. Social Workers will support students in developing foundational emotional and social skills within classrooms, as well as private and collaborative Social Work office spaces.

Elementary School Social Workers will work in a learning environment carefully crafted to instill a love of learning for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders, as well as private and collaborative Social Work office spaces. Our unique school setting in the heart of Washington Heights provides a perfect environment for young learners. In addition, the nature that surrounds our campus provides a great setting for our young explorers.

"I believe this is where I have the greatest impact within the Social Work profession. I can do the work that is going to last! I can connect with people, very young, and see the fruits of the work last for years and years." - TEP Social Worker
