Working at San Diego Youth Services
San Diego Youth Services is an equal opportunity employer. As an organization, we believe that, in order to ensure a maximum quality of life, all persons should be given the opportunity to be exposed to, and learn about, the differences in humanity which bring a richness and unity to life. It is our intent to have staffing that reflects the ethnic makeup of the community.
Our staff has the opportunity to participate in events that are celebrated by the many communities that make up San Diego. The administrative reception area proudly displays trophies and plaques awarded for entries in the Gay and Lesbian Pride, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cinco De Mayo parades. Staff workdays throughout the year are punctuated by celebrations that features the different cultures of the larger community.
Our management encourages participation at all levels, from our youth clients, community members, and employees to our board of directors. Our staff has the opportunity to gather together to build their team and to set the agenda of their programs.
San Diego Youth Services encourages its staff to work within a social change model, and to utilize a community development approach that empowers the people they serve to be self determinant. We refer to the youth and family clients we serves as “service partners.” This simple terminology represents the agency’s fundamental view that all clients play an active role in meeting their own needs. The work of our staff facilitates the ability of service partners to determine their own life directions.
