Multiple positions as Group Life Coordinators at MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn, Oregon. Your role as the group life coordinator (GLC) ensures a safe and secure environment for the public, youth, and staff.  The GLC provides pro-social role modeling by working directly with youth carrying out the specific day to day functions of each unit.  This includes:

  • Provide daily supervision, control and treatment of adjudicated youth at OYA and youth from Department of Corrections in a secure correctional facility.
  • Coaching, confronting, and correcting the behavior of the youth.
  • Observing, evaluating, and recording youth behavior, attitude, and performance. You will record their attendance and participation in treatment groups, recreations, vocational/educational activities, and/or community service and document unusual incidents and critical events.
  • Prepare Youth Incident Reports (YIRs)
  • Assign, train, and supervise youth who are performing chores on living units and jobs within the facility (e.g., maintenance, kitchen, laundry, landscaping, janitorial, etc.)
  • Assist with treatment of youth and facility programs.
  • Observe and monitor youth offenders for suicide prevention and potential health and safety risks.
  • Conduct security inspections and searches of facility, grounds, and state vehicles.
  • Conduct searches of the youth and youth’s property.
  • Verbally and/or physically intervene to control youth behavior. Physically restrain youth as necessary.
  • Administer medication to youth (under the training and indirect supervision of medical staff) and maintain contact with medical staff to ensure appropriate medical care for the youth.
  • May provide secure transport of youth to appointments within the community.
Additional Details:

However, we encourage candidates who meet the minimum qualifications for a GLC1 ($2,852.00 - $4,217.00 monthly/$16.45 - $24.33 hourly) to apply, as we may consider under-filling the position until the selected candidate meets the minimum qualifications for a GLC2. Under-fill training will not exceed one year.
