The Child Center of NY is committed to closing the gap for kids and families in under-served communities of NY. Doing this requires dedicated individuals seeking to make a difference in their own backyards.

We have many mental health positions available that allow you to serve your community, comfortably and safely through this difficult time through remote visits and flexible hours. If you are a psychiatrist, social worker, or non-physician provider, New York needs your help today!
Child and Youth Development
Though we are still unsure of the impact of COVID-19, one thing is clear: We need to be ready to step in when things get back to normal. Be there to support children and families as they reacclimate to routines by joining us as an Activity Specialist, Group Leader, or other member of the team. Provide education, consistency, and mentorship to children who are excited and in need of the skills and compassion you’ll bring to one of our many programs.
