We are currently looking for a person to lead our youth groups, bringing the Lifeteen program/format to our children’s home in Honduras. We are looking for someone who loves to work with young people, and has a lot of energy to be able to work long hours and build personal relationships with our youth. This person would be a good listener and would be willing to spend time even outside of work hours to be a mentor and example for the kids. The person will be well prepared and organized, disciplined, creative, a go-getter, a team-worker, and carry a positive attitude even amongst the challenges of the work. The person would be an example of faith for the kids and be able to motivate them to put their faith into practice. She/he should be a person of prayer and inspired to service of the poor always in the love of Jesus. We are a Catholic home and so the person would need to be a Christian Catholic who is participating in the sacraments. We are located outside the capital city of Honduras in Central America and so Spanish fluency is a must.
About our Parish / School / Organization
Since 1954, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) has cared for thousands of orphaned and abandoned children. The first home opened in Mexico, later followed by homes in Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Peru and Bolivia. To date, over 17,800 children have been cared for by this unique and loving family.
Through the generosity of a worldwide network of support organizations, our children are provided with food, clothing, shelter, medical care and an education. "An education," states founder Fr. William B. Wasson, "will take my children out of the poverty into which they were born." Children of all ages are embraced by our loving family that is Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. Some have been abandoned, others have lost one or both parents and have no one to care for them. Many have physical and emotional scars that eventually heal as they begin to trust their new family. Through the principles of love, security, sharing, work and responsibility, the children begin to thrive. A careful balance of these five principles helps the children succeed and live in harmony. Our boys and girls are raised in a loving environment, secure in the knowledge they will never be forced to leave the home. They are promised they will never be separated from their siblings, nor given up for adoption. In addition to a good education, their spiritual and emotional needs are nourished, preparing them for adulthood with tools to break the cycle of poverty that once was their destiny.
Our Children embrace employees and volunteers as they would embrace their own parents, aunts, and uncles. An employee or volunteer who has served time in the home shares a place with the children forever recognized as part of our extended family, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos.
