Associate Family Teachers are hourly employees that work alongside the Family Teachers. They assist in providing treatment to the students and aid in general management of the home. While these women do not reside on campus, they are integral to the stability of each home by serving as role models and teachers to the students. In addition to helping the Family Teachers with routine tasks, they are also highly trained and certified in the Teaching-Family Model. This qualifies them for the important role of overseeing their assigned home when Family Teachers take time off. Each home is assigned two full time and one part time Associate as a part of the treatment team.
