San Antonio Clubhouse seeks ClubhouseTexas Peer Policy Fellow  Position based in San Antonio, TX

ClubhouseTexas Peer Policy Fellow

The San Antonio Clubhouse is accepting applications for the ClubhouseTexas Peer Policy Fellow. The Peer Policy Fellow will be afforded an opportunity to become an expert in the clubhouse recovery model and will lead policy advocacy and education efforts throughout Texas from our San Antonio office.

About the San Antonio Clubhouse

The San Antonio Clubhouse is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that follows the clubhouse recovery model, which is in-use at over 330 clubhouses throughout the world. The model contributes to the recovery of individuals through an environment that provides rewarding volunteer opportunities. Individuals who participate in the Clubhouse are called "members." Fundamental elements of member participation include openness and choice in type of work activities, choice in staff, and a lifetime right of re-entry and access to all clubhouse services. The clubhouse does not perform "traditional" mental health activities, such as therapy. Our approach to mental health recovery is simple: to work with our members in whatever capacity they want to volunteer, and to help them reach their goals. We do this together as a clubhouse community, where members are free to volunteer with other members or our support staff, as they choose. We are open Monday through Friday to adults with a mental health diagnosis, at no cost.

The San Antonio Clubhouse is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit, not associated with an auspice agency.  We’ve been operating for 14 years and recently moved into a new 20,000 square-foot two-story building.  The Clubhouse Work Ordered Day program is housed on the first floor (10,000 Square Feet), with the second floor reserved for new programming in the future.  We are Accredited and actively participate in all Clubhouse International activities, including national and international conferences, and Colleague Training (on a yearly basis).

What we look like today

  • Over 2,000 members
  • 650 members who’ve participated in the past 24 months
  • 454 members who’ve participated in the past 12 months
  • 229 members who are active (participated in last 90 days)
  • Approximately 45-55 members attending daily
  • 3 units
    • Operations – 3 Generalists (Culinary, Wellness, Facilities)
    • Member Services – 3 Generalists (Employment, Member Services / Onboarding, Member Readiness)
    • Media Lab – 2 Generalists (Multimedia Coach and Mission Systems Coach)
    • An active consulting service (the Assistance and Management Program), through which we help other clubhouses, primarily in Texas
    • Highly-systemized, with custom technology for data-tracking, case management, and outcomes reporting—all of which is done by our members as part of the Work-Ordered Day
    • No Medicaid billing (today), and only minimal state / county reporting
    • Annual budget: ~$900K—almost entirely raised through private donors and foundations

Where we’re headed

Our vision for the San Antonio Clubhouse is to be the hub of mental health recovery in San Antonio.  For 14 years, our non-profit (the San Antonio Clubhouse, Inc) has only operated one program: the Clubhouse Work-Ordered Day (WOD) program.  To meet the goals set forth in our Strategic Plan, we will begin adding additional services to our overall non-profit organization, meaning that the Clubhouse Work-Ordered Day program will be only one of the programs offered by the organization

Our intention is to create these programs outside of the Clubhouse WOD program to keep fidelity to the Clubhouse model.  The Clubhouse WOD is the reason we exist—the new programs will be created to supplement or complement the WOD program.  These new programs may include:

  • A young-adults program
  • A day program that is less rigorous than the clubhouse (for adults who are not ready to be in a clubhouse environment)
  • A social-enterprise program focused on creating paying jobs for adults living with mental illness.

What makes the San Antonio Clubhouse different from other clubhouses

The San Antonio Clubhouse is unique.  Here are a few of the things that make us unique:

  • We’re independent from any auspice agencies, so we have incredible flexibility in what we do and how we operate.
  • We have a culture of innovation and creativity.  Because of our flexibility, we’re able to try new projects (like a social enterprise to market/sell coffee) or create new units (a development/fundraising unit).  We value good ideas, regardless of where they originate.  We’re exploring the addition of several new programs over the next 12 months, including the creation of our own Farmer’s Market (for non-profits), an urban-farming team, and a unit focused on managing databases for other clubhouses
  • We value the experience of our staff members as much as the experience of our members.  In the past year, we’ve cut the “required” staff work hours from 40 to 37.5 without lowering salaries. We’ve also made changes meant to reduce “burnout” and improve staff morale
  • We have a unique role in the clubhouse world, working as both a clubhouse and a service provider to other clubhouses.  We provide technical assistance, consulting, and technology support to other clubhouses (primarily in Texas), but in other cities as well.  We love what we do at our clubhouse and enjoy helping other clubhouses grow

Expectations of the Program Manager

As the Clubhouse Program Manager, you’d:

  • Lead our clubhouse
    • Ensure we deliver the best experience to our members and staff
    • Be responsible for setting the emotional tone of the Clubhouse
    • Pro-actively work with the rest of the organization’s management team to identify potential issues and to find positive solutions
    • Lead by example, modeling energy and enthusiasm, compassion, teamwork, perseverance, and creativity
    • Be an independent thought-leader
      • Work with very minimal direction, but with support from the rest of the organization’s management team
      • Balance the collaborative nature of clubhouse and the requirements of being a leader and manager—do high-quality work, on time.
      • Be flexible and responsive to the changing needs of the overall organization (the other programs outside of clubhouse)
      • Make good decisions through a combination of analysis, wisdom, experience, and judgement.
      • Balance the big picture with the “day-to-day”
        • Be willing to think through how we would implement new ideas, even if we don’t ultimately pursue them
        • Think strategically, anticipate future consequences and trends, and incorporate them into the organizational plan
        • Develop strategies to achieve organizational goals and adapts strategy to changing conditions
        • Mentor and develop our staff
          • Build organizational and staff capacity, developing a top-notch workforce, and the supervising protocols and processes that ensure the organization runs smoothly, professionally, and at the highest ethical and legal standards
          • Inspire, manage, and lead, with the ability to connect staff both on an individual level and in groups
          • Be capable of enforcing accountability and learn the strengths and weaknesses of the team to put people in a position to succeed
          • Always be learning
            • Demonstrate a broad experience with the full range of business functions and systems, including strategic development and planning, budgeting, business analysis, information systems, federal and state government funding administration, and marketing
            • Constantly learn new processes and technologies—you’d be overseeing units that do some of the most complex work done in any clubhouse, anywhere

What you WOULD NOT be responsible for

  • Data collection—this is, and should always be, primarily unit work
  • Fundraising—you’d support fundraising and development efforts through the WOD and unit-work, but you would not personally be responsible for the overall fundraising for the organization
  • Working with the Board of Directors—you’d interact with them, but Board relationships are ultimately responsibility of the Executive Director

Job Requirements

  • An understanding and commitment to the Clubhouse model and its underlying principles and values
  • Ability to work flexible hours, including evenings, weekend, and holiday hours
  • Ability to travel both within and out of state, for up-to two-weeks at a time (up-to twice per year) and up-to one-week at a time (up-to 8 times per year)

Send both to: Eric Estrada: Eric@SAClubhouse.org.  Please, no calls.

Like any Club, members feel a commonality and reach out to support one another both in times of celebration and times of crisis.
