Job Openings

LifeSPAN often has openings for part-time network facilitators. We are looking for people with life experience to help adults with a developmental disability to connect with a community and build a support network of friends. LifeSPAN is a non-profit that embraces flexibility and provides a supportive environment for facilitators. Among the essential elements of being a successful Facilitator at LifeSPAN is the ability to engage, listen to, and guide a group of people that have come together for one purpose: the focus person.

Although a network is centered on one person, the vitality of the network depends on all of its members. As a facilitator, being able to promote individual choices, foster community interaction and continuously discover common purposes within others allows the network to thrive.

Please contact LifeSPAN for more information about becoming a facilitator if you:

  • Have a natural talent for connecting people
  • Enjoy extending hospitality
  • Have mature judgment about working with people
  • Have excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • See the “gifts” rather than the “deficits” of others
  • Have good time-management skills
  • Believe that relationships are essential for all people to have a good life
  • Want to help people who are isolated to develop their support networks
  • Are willing to commit to a minimum of 1-2 years of part-time work with a network.

This is an excellent opportunity for:

  • Retirees
  • Graduate students
  • Stay-at-home parents
  • Busy professionals
