AMCS is now offering a specific program for marriage and family, professional clinical counselor, and registered associate social workers who are interested in exclusively working with at-risk children and their families at school sites where we provide counseling services.

This requires a one-year commitment of approximately 12 hours per week. This program is ideal for those associates who want to focus on acquiring experience and California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) hours working with children and families.

If you are a registered associate with the BBS and you are interested in this program please send your cover letter, resume, and a completed application to Bob Northcutt, LMFT, Recruitment Coordinator, at bnorthcutt@airportmarina.org.
