The Arc of Alameda County announced today that it is looking to fill several newly created jobs in addition to having several openings for its more traditional jobs.  Click here for more information.

 

One of the newly created positions is that of Assistant Campus Director. The person filling the job will be a foreman, job coach and supervise clerical staff.  The primary function, however, will be to assist Arc clients (people with intellectual and developmental disabilities) to find a jobs in the competitive marketplace.

 

“Job #1 at the Arc is finding jobs for our clients,” said The Arc of Alameda County’s CEO, Ronald Luter. “We need to find employees with just the right balance of empathy and ‘tough love’ to get our clients prepared for the job seeking process.”

 

The Arc is looking for three Assistant Directors at its campuses in San Leandro, Livermore and Hayward.

 

The other position that is newly created is that of Community Work Supervisor.  Three such positions are available one each in San Leandro, Hayward, and Union City.  The individuals filling this job will drive clients in Arc vans to local neighborhoods to place door hangers asking residents to donate clothing for our recycling program.  A few days later the driver returns with clients to pick up the donations.

 

Tim Hornbecker, The Arc’s Director of Business and Resource Development, said, “The recycling program is a great source of jobs for our clients.” He also noted that the money raised stays in Alameda County “to help us keep our programs up and running so our clients and their families may lead lives of dignity and quality.”

 

Other jobs available are:

  • Master Teacher – at The Arc’s First Step Children’s Center in Hayward a program for preschoolers with developmental delays.
  • Job/Life Skills Instructor – at our facilities in Union City and San Leandro.
  • Instructors and The Alternative Ventures Program in San Leandro and Union City (the Union City position is part-time).

About The Arc of Alameda County

We serve some 400 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, Pleasanton, Dublin and every Alameda County city in between.  We serve clients each weekday at four locations – Hayward, San Leandro, Union City and Livermore.  The Arc traces its roots to the 1950s when parents of children with cerebral palsy, down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, epilepsy and other developmental disabilities refused to send their offspring to state institutions.  The Arc became the community-based alternative to those Developmental Centers.  Our mission is to provide the education, support and advocacy so that our clients have the skills to live, work and play in their own communities.
