Employment at Turning Winds

Turning Winds is a relational-based, premier therapeutic boarding school for teenagers 13-18 who are struggling in life.  We specialize in providing superior treatment for the following presenting issues:  low self-worth; mild behavioral problems; poor academic performance; various adolescent disorders that may include ADD/ADHD, depression etc. ; various addictions such as substance abuse, gaming and pornography; and attachment disorders.

Our mission is to Rescue teens from crisis, Renew their belief in their own potential and Reunite them with their family and a sustainable path of success.

Our campus is located in a rural environment on 150 acres of tranquil property nestled amongst the Kootenai National Forest in Troy, Montana.  Our environment is not for everyone!  It is suited for those who love the outdoors and enjoy a slower pace of life.  For those that would like to trade their three hours/day commuting in traffic just fifteen miles in place of a beautiful one hour commute traveling 2-4 days per week then this may be a good fit for you.   At TWAI, we leverage this unique and amazing environment to promote change, learning and the development of talents amongst the youth that we work with.

We do offer staff living quarters for those that would like to stay on campus while they are working at the school and we also provide all meals for our team members. Most of our employees only work 3-4 days per week so they can enjoy their lives outside of work.

We encourage anyone who is ready to join the TWAI family to apply for the position that you are interested in.   We look forward to meeting with you and hope that you can join us in being part of the TWAI difference!

Zone Of Proximal Development

Zone of Proximal Development is the range of tasks that are too difficult for a person to learn alone, but can be learned with guidance from someone with experience in the task. This term was developed by Vygotsky as part of his theory on child development. The zone has a lower limit: things that are difficult but possible for a child to learn alone, and an upper limit: things that a child cannot yet learn, even with assistance from an adult. For a toddler, an example of the lower limit might be putting shaped pegs into similarly shaped holes. An example of the upper limit might be adding and subracting two-digit numbers.

Yerkes – Dodson Law Of Arousal

The Yerkes-Dodson Law of Arousal, also known as Arousal Theory, states that an organism’s performance can be improved if that organism is aroused in some manner. However, if the level of arousal increases too much, performance decreases. Of course, this level is different in everyone. An example of this is an athlete who performs better under real game situation than he/she does during practice games. There is more arousal (stress, excitement) during the real games which increases their performance. But, if the pressure becomes too much, their performance can decrease (e.g., missing an easy shot with time running out and losing the game — choking!)
