SEAMAAC welcomes applications for the position of Lead Truancy Case Manager. SEAMAAC is a nonprofit organization in Philadelphia, with the mission “To support and serve immigrants and refugees and other politically, socially and economically marginalized communities as they seek to advance the condition of their lives in the United States.” SEAMAAC envisions a strong and unified society, where immigrants and refugees work alongside other Americans to build shared political, economic and social power. We envision a community where the contributions of each generation of Americans, whether Native to this land, immigrant, or brought against their will, are equally acknowledged, valued and embraced, and where all people live whole, healthy lives with joy and dignity.
SEAMAAC’s Truancy Case Management (TCM) program works in partnership with Philadelphia’s Department of Human Services (DHS) and School District of Philadelphia to improve school attendance and academic achievement through case management with at-risk children, youth and their families. Although our TCM Program serves communities of all races and ethnicities, the majority of referrals we receive from SDP and DHS are for children and families from the African American community. The Lead Truancy Case Manager (LCM) will serve as a liaison between the TCM admin team and new hires. The LCM will train new hires for the first three (3) months after start dates of employment. Training packets for new hires must be provided, thoroughly reviewed, all tasks completed, and submitted to direct Supervisor of new hire. The LCM will demonstrate a mastery proficiency in TCM program standards and responsibilities. The LCM will perform all tiers of services including case management and supporting the transition of cases to Family Court. The LCM will carry a maximum caseload of 20 families at any time and up to 35 families during periods of high program referral rates. LCMs work in a fast-pace and high-pressure environment, handling multiple and simultaneous priorities, balancing the needs of families, requirements from funders and adherence to tight schedules and strict deadlines. The program’s goal is to increase opportunities for children and youth to build positive relationships in their family, school and communities, and to help them achieve their full academic potential.
