Primary Objective of Position:
To participate in delivering youth program services at Quincy House and to carry out the vision to provide our students hope, love and support throughout their journey as a young adult.
Areas of Responsibility:
- Preparation - Leaders will watch a video or read a briefing of what is to come on a given program night. This will allow the leader to be intentional with his or her nightly conversation.

This consistency manifests itself in showing up to program physically, as well as showing up to each relationship, conversation and activity going on at Quincy.
- Willingness to Intervene - Leaders must be willing to confront and handle conflict amongst teens, and they must actively share and voice their thoughts in Group and Real Talk, especially when teens are not speaking up.

About QUINCY HOUSE
8025 RED OAK DR, MOUNDS VIEW, MN 55112, US
Quincy House was established in the Summer of 2015 to provide hope, guidance, and unconditional love to at-risk teens dealing with tough issues, such as depression, suicidal tendencies, substance abuse, truancy, self-injury, and homelessness. Our balanced programs meet the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual needs of at-risk teens. Teens experience grace at Quincy House and are reminded they are loved unconditionally by God & our leaders. All teens are welcome regardless of background. Quincy House provides a safe environment and mentorship for each teen to receive support, guidance, and practical skills in making better choices today to live as healthy adults tomorrow.
Currently, we serve teens enrolled in 6th - 12th grade with after school and summer programs. These take place on Tuesday and Thursday nights throughout the year and may involve outings or activities on other days of the week. Our mission is to transform lives by empowering teens to have hope for their future, while providing unconditional love and guidance along the way.
