Mapletree has been working successfully with at-risk teenage boys, and building a good reputation in the professional communities of juvenile corrections, social services, and mental health since 1991. Mapletree can provide an excellent vantage point in which to learn about juvenile corrections, social services, child welfare, mental health, and the treatment of a wide range of maladjustments of adolescence. Most former Mapletree staff have found their experience at Mapletree to be excellent preparation for career advancement. No one gets rich working in the social services, but the experience and job satisfaction can be very rewarding. It’s a chance to make a difference with kids that need a chance.
Mapletree is particularly interested in high energy, outgoing, engaging individuals that enjoy working as part of a team, understand teenagers (to the extent anyone can), and have the skills to develop rapport and command respect from at-risk teenage boys. Because we provide residential-based services to kids who have a broad range of needs, the staff that we hire need to be able to accommodate a broad range of shifts and responsibilities. Successful candidates must be able to pass a background check conducted by the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, as required by state law.
