Breaking generational cycles of poverty and trauma has powerful, positive impact on people and communities. As a Trauma-Informed Care organization and premier social impact provider, Lutheran Community Services Northwest (LCSNW) strives to ensure that individuals of all ages have timely access to services from knowledgeable caring providers for clinically and culturally appropriate behavioral healthcare, crime victim advocacy, and related services.
LCSNW invites you to learn about the variety of behavioral health and human services careers available in a mid-sized agency. People in these fields partner with clients as they make their journeys from addiction, trauma and mental health issues to recovery (behavioral health); help refugees and immigrants rebuild their lives in the United States (immigration and refugee services); stand with victims of crimes to offer support, connections to services that aid with healing and recovery, and assistance through investigative and legal processes (crime victims’ services); and work to ensure that neglected, abused, parentless and other at-risk children are surrounded by loving families (child, youth and family wellness).
Lutheran Community Services Northwest partners with individuals, families and communities for health, justice and hope. We work to respond to community needs, investing in services that make a difference for clients and strengthen our communities. With a century of experience, recognized expertise and a legacy of success and dedication our 650+ employees are proud to serve more than 40,000 people each year across Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Our staff are vital to the success of our work. A diverse group of professionals with unique talents and lived experience help us connect with our clients in meaningful ways that lead to stronger and broader community impacts.
Teaching the Teachers workshops gives educators the chance to attend a workshop hosted by a local business to learn about the careers and relevant skills students need to open a pathway to their future career. Businesses provide their expertise to share a real-life look at their organization, the types of careers they employ, and the training required to successfully work in their industry. We invite you to help us build a world-class talent pipeline.
Workshops are open to all teachers, advisors, college & career readiness counselors, administrators in NEWESD 101. Clock hours will be provided to each eligible attendee.
