Our Commitment to Equity
The Y actively promotes a culture free from bias and injustice. We are dedicated to removing institutional and systemic barriers that result in oppression and racism. We will be accountable to marginalized communities for creating equitable and sustainable environments where social justice is woven into every facet of our programs, and by caring for our communities in a culturally versatile and respectful manner.


Job Summary

This is an on-call position which ensures the safety, cleanliness, and healthy social environment for three to five young adults in communal living. The Resident Manager supports each of the young adults in managing household responsibilities and checks in with them on their productivity towards program expectations and personal goals. Additionally, the Resident Manager encourages the transition for each young adult to permanent stable housing, as well as teaches independent living skills to the young adults. When full-time and part-time staff are needing shift coverage, the Resident Manager I is the first to be notified when coverage is needed.


This position is at Accelerator Y, the social services branch of YGS. The mission of Accelerator Y is to accelerate young people’s ability to build safe, successful and happy lives. Every year, we serve 5,000 children, youth, young adults, and families across King County with programs that aim to strengthen young people’s ability to develop to their fullest potential through four strategies: reducing risk factors; navigating systems towards successful life transition; ensuring stability, safety and wellness in times of crisis; and building competencies and social capital. Accelerator Y’s programs include housing, behavioral health, foster care licensing, violence prevention, education, and employment. Many of the young people we serve have had involvement in the foster care, criminal justice system, and/or homelessness systems.



This is an on-call position, and hours as well as days of work vary Monday through Sunday. It is expected that the Resident Manager I attends mandatory staff meetings (2x monthly) and mandatory staff trainings.
