Keshet provides highly individualized and integrated education programs at seven sites throughout Chicago and the north shore from kindergarten through age 22. We believe in maximizing each student’s potential while fostering caring communities in which students learn and grow. Therefore, we maintain a dual focus on developing students’ academic and daily living skills while also integrating them into their home community. Occupational, physical, speech, language therapists, and social workers are on staff to meet the needs of each student and to help students make the transition from high school into the workforce. The Keshet High School works with a vocational specialist who coordinates job training and experiences for the students within their community, providing a foundation of skills carried on through the Coe-Worker Keshet Transition Program.
Keshet is seeking a licensed School Social Worker to help students attain an optimum level of personal and social adjustment in an inclusive school setting. In order to respond to the individual needs and abilities of students, the School Social Worker must work closely with the teachers, staff and administration of Keshet’s education programs.All Postings
