Why should you come to Allendale?

Nothing prepares you for a career in human services better than a position on the front line. There is no greater satisfaction than helping kids come to terms with their pasts and turn their lives around, finding their strengths, learning to make positive rather than destructive choices and daring to hope. The work done at Allendale Association is both rewarding and challenging. At every level, our staff shares a passion for making a difference. You too can make a difference in a child’s life!

If you are interested in the possibility of joining our team and helping our youth and families to learn…grow… and heal, please see our current open positions.


“…Your purpose or calling in life is really at the intersection of your great passion and the world’s great need. It’s not just about following your passion. Spend some time looking at the world and not just yourself. Find a cause that’s greater than you.” –Jake Wobbrock, New York Times Corner Office, “Jake Wobbrock of AnswerDash: Lead With Strengths, and Weaknesses”
