Job Summary: Our Non-Secure Detention (NSD) and Non-Secure Placement Facilities are 12-bed programs that house juvenile delinquent youth between the ages of 11-17. The Floating Youth Specialist (YS) will be responsible for assisting in our NSD and NSP Bronx facilities to provide adequate care, safety, custody, control and counseling with the aim of allowing the youth to leave the house and become a productive member of society. The Director of Juvenile Justice Facilities will assign the Floating Youth Specialist to Bronx programs based upon daily staffing needs. Because the Floating YS will need to work in different programs, s/he must have experience as a YS in the NYC juvenile justice system.
