Testimony from 2019 CMU graduate:
“Mesa County Partners gave me experience, opportunities, and a job that was flexible with my schooling. Most importantly, Partners helped me find where my heart wanted to be… with youth. It helped me find this new unconditional compassion for those less fortunate than I. It made me realize that I really can and have made a huge difference in so many lives. It sprung life into my career and helped me define the path I want to take. I owe all my success to Partners.”
Crew Supervisor Job Description: “A day in the life of a crew sup!”
· Find location and info for the job.
· Sign the kids in, make sure they turn in their cell phones, lighters, electronics, knives, and anything else they are not supposed to have on crews.
· Call the job before you leave the building and let them know what time you will be there.
· If no kids show up call the homeowner and let them know. If they still want you to come out to the job site, you as the supervisor must do your best to complete the job for that day.
· Do a head count before leaving the building and periodically throughout the day.
· Make sure you have the proper tools for the job, first aid kit in the vehicle, kids are always wearing safety vest, safety glasses, gloves, bug repellent, wasp spray, and sun block.
· When you arrive to the job site, find the owner that hired us and get specific details for the job. It is very important that we talk to them face to face.
· Never let the owner direct the kids on what to do. Tell the owner if the youth need direction, let you the crew supervisor know, and you will direct the youth.
· Make sure the kids are safe at the job site.
· Keep the kids working and consistently making progress.
· Reward the kids with short breaks if working hard.
· Always have a jug of drinking water for the youth.
· Always talk to the owner face to face, before leaving the job, whether it is to do a dump run, or mulch run, or the job is complete.
· Let the owner know that we are done or coming back later. If we did not complete the job have them contact D.J. to reschedule another day to finish.
· Let the owner know if you are going to be late going to the job site or if an incident happens where you are unable to go back to the job. Keep them informed.
· Discuss with the owner how many hours you have documented for the day before you leave for the day.
· Do not accept payment for the job. Let the client know that the job scheduler (D.J.) will send them an invoice.
· If the job site is unsafe for the kids, remove the kids from the situation and call D.J. immediately and explain.
· If a kid is injured at the job site and you wonder if you should call 911, that is your cue to call 911. If the injury is a small cut or scrape call a supervisor to get another opinion on how to take care of the situation. Better to be safe than sorry.
· If the youth physically hurt each other, call the authorities, then a supervisor.
· Fill out proper paperwork for incidents or injuries.
· Properly put tools away at the end of the day in a organized fashion.
· Unhook the trailer from the vehicle and park them in the designated parking spots. Please make sure we are not taking up two parking spaces.
· Fill out the job sheet with correct detailed info. Supervisors name that did the job, number of youths, number hours at the job site, dump run or mulch run, Job complete or not complete, if you didn’t have a job due to weather or any other circumstance put what you did the entire day with the time.
· Fill out the youth’s time sheets at the end of the day.
· Make sure the kids leave with their parents or sign out to walk home.
· When you leave the building make sure there are not any youth hanging out in the parking lot. Wait with them until their ride gets there.
· Turn off lights and lock the doors to the building.
· Complete regular bathroom and building checks.
· Stay up to date with COVID cleaning measures.
