Good-2-Go Oregon is Central Oregon's premiere community-based support program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). We specialize in high functioning adults who experience some form of Developmental Disability.
The Applied Community Experience (ACE) department helps our clients learn social skills and community norms through the creation and hosting of fun, community-based group activities. These activities currently host only 6 clients due to COVID restrictions, but have historically seen turnouts as high as 30+ clients. This allows clients to meet other people in the I/DD community, make friends, learn to socialize in a group setting, and most importantly, have fun!
Trip leaders are responsible for the execution of these small events. They help clients pay for events, teach the skills required to participate, and encourage clients to remain engaged in the event. They are responsible for keeping events exciting and energetic, while also monitoring for safety and well being of clients.
Senior Trip leaders are also responsible for the “back end” setup of events. This includes office duties such as calling clients to confirm attendance, assisting with the planning of events, gathering materials and supplies for events, and assisting with data entry.
Essentially, the Sr. Trip Leader is responsible for taking an event from a scheduled block on the calendar to a fun, seamless experience for the client.
Common activities include:
A Typical Day:
Senior Trip Leaders start most days in the late morning at the office with the ACE program manager. If there is an event that day, the Sr. Trip Leader will begin calling clients to confirm their reservations and grabbing required materials for the event. The staff will later attend the event to support clients and other staff members. If there is no event, or there is time before the event starts, the Sr. Trip Leader will help to maintain the G2G facebook page, assist with newsletter creation, and assist with paperwork.
We are looking for a fun, empathetic, and patient individual to help with events. Candidates must show strong problem solving skills, be able to de-escalate situations, and possess a spirit of fun and adventure.
