Trinity Boston Connects (TBC), a respected social justice nonprofit, is seeking a licensed Staff Clinician to join this dynamic community change organization. The mission of Trinity Boston Connects is to heal youth of color from the traumatic impact of systemic racism. We are looking for an individual who believes passionately in this mission and understands the necessity to address systemic racism from multiple angles. The Staff Clinician will work within the clinical care pathway to provide counseling services to adults working with youth.
If you are interested in working on a team that “walks-the-talk” and are seeking an opportunity to deepen and amplify the impact of our organization in the city of Boston for years to come, then please consider the following detailed description and apply!
TBC was born out of the social justice mission of Trinity Church in the City of Boston. We believe that healing the traumatic impact of systemic racism cannot take place without programmatic interventions that integrate three Community Practices: Trauma Inclusion, Restorative Justice, and Racial Equity. The integration of these practices forms the basis of our programming, including both our direct services for youth and our convening, training, and consulting work with other youth-serving organizations throughout the City of Boston.
Our Youth Development & Leadership Division integrates programs that create safe and supportive communities that inspire youth to develop the social emotional learning (SEL) skills necessary for academic, life and career success. These programs include: Sole Train: Boston Runs Together, Trinity@McCormack, and
Trinity Education for Excellence Program (TEEP) which together provide direct services to nearly 1,000 youth and families.
In addition, to truly heal the trauma, the communities in which our youth live, learn, and develop must also change. It is not enough to help young people navigate oppressive environments, we strive to help change the schools, institutions, and organizations within which our programs operate so that they in turn can be more supportive and nurturing of the youth they serve. To accomplish this, we develop and share best practices with other youth-serving organizations through our Trinity Boston Counseling Center and
Organizational Equity Practice. We provide clinical services through TBCC, and through OEP we convene, train, coach, and consult to Boston youth-serving organizations to effect enduring change in the systems and organizations that impact an additional 15,000 youth and families.
TBC has a staff of 30 and an annual budget of over $3 million. Our revenue sources are divided roughly equally between grants from foundations and corporations, charitable contributions from individuals, and from contracts, events and Trinity Church grants designated for social justice work. TBC is governed by an independent 24-member Board of Directors.
Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC) was founded in 2002 with a mission to extend access for people of color (POC) who needed a place for quality mental health care that was culturally responsive and attended to the whole person with an emphasis on spirituality. We continue to do this with a dedicated focus on the mental health and holistic wellness of Boston youth workers. We provide clinical space for youth workers to bring their whole selves into the therapeutic relationship, including their racial identity, creating the conditions for healing from the trauma of systemic racism and increasing their effectiveness as youth workers.
TBCC focuses its services on providing individual therapy, group therapy, consultation, and training for youth workers. Youth workers (Adults working with Youth) are individuals who spend the bulk of their time
(vocational or volunteer) providing services for, mentoring, supporting, and/or teaching youth (ages 0-24).
In our extensive experience with youth, youth workers, and youth-serving agencies we have found that youth workers need more support and with increased support, they create better outcomes for young people.
This is an exciting time to join our community! TBC has just completed a strategic plan aimed at achieving deeper and broader impact in the community through clearer focus and increased integration of offerings.
Over the next two to three years TBC will implement this new strategy, involving a reorganization of staff, with new roles and greater collaboration and integration, all with the aim of better, more holistic support of the youth and organizations that we serve. We are accredited by the Solihten Institute, and we are looking to increase our service offerings.
