We provide year-round comprehensive residential, vocational, and educational programming for children, adolescents, and young adults with dually diagnosed developmental disabilities and emotional disturbances.
Why work at GLS?
- To make a difference – First and foremost, the best reason for working here is that you have a rare opportunity to make a profound difference in the lives of the students we work with. It is our vision at GLS that every student leaves us prepared to live his or her best possible life, in a family or community that accepts and supports them.
- Opportunity – As an employee-owned company, we are committed to maintaining an environment where both our students and staff can grow. We make this a reality for our employees by offering ongoing training, promotional opportunities, tuition assistance, and the chance to be heard through voluntary participation in various committees and information sessions.
- Recognition – This is a tough job. Not just anyone can be successful in this field, and we appreciate those that give it their all daily. Therefore, we are committed to offering various activities throughout the year to show our employees that we appreciate everything they do for us. Some examples include (but are not limited to) our annual health and wellness week, farm day (at our on-campus organic farm) for staff and their families, a holiday party and buffet, team builders, monthly anniversary parties, field day, bowling day, our Employee of the Month and Kudos programs, and so much more!
Homegrown Farms, located on the Genesee Lake School campus, has integrated with the school and it's activities. The farm grows fresh organic vegetables for the school kitchen, and raises chickens and goats for an overall farm and educational experience for the students. In addition to growing in the field, we use Hydroponics, a responsible and sustainable method to farming, allowing us to provide year-round food production.
This position will assist with general maintenance duties for both the farm and greenhouse, and in the Spring have additional seasonal duties.
