Thornwell: Family Teachers

For 142 years, Thornwell has been committed to providing the highest quality of care for preschoolers to transitional living for young adults. We are a ministry of the Presbyterian Church USA and are located in Clinton, South Carolina - a historic, college town in upstate SC. 

We are seeking couples to work in professional positions to provide a nurturing, family style setting for 8 children.  We have nine cottages on our campus and staff each cottage with two couples as to allow for consistency for the children and adequate time off for staff.  Thornwell uses the Teaching-Family Model of child care.  Our four-hundred acre campus includes historic buildings, cottages, farm, recreational facilities and a Learning Center.

We desire nurturing, professional and deeply committed ministry minded people who are ready to accept the challenge of working with hurting children. If you are interested in serving God and serving kids, we invite you to apply.

Competitive salary and benefits, plus off-duty housing.  Relocation assistance available.
