This position is eligible to receive a $250 signing bonus!
Friends of Youth will be requiring all employee, vendors/contractors, and volunteers to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination by October 18, 2021. The updated policy is intended to comply with all State, Federal, and local laws, and is based upon guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Governor Inslee’s amendment of Proclamation 20-05 and 20-14, requires vaccinations for Health Care providers. As we are all still in our Covid-19 journey with many lives affected, lost loved ones, those with long term symptoms, and the emerging cases from the Delta variant, this is the best decision for the youth and young adults we serve, as well as our staff. For more information please contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
