Are you interested in making a difference for children, youth and their families? Join the Janus Team!

Janus Youth is a  non-profit organization that changes the lives of over 6,000 youth every year through our 40 programs in Oregon and Washington. Youth who are runaway or homeless. Youth who have been trafficked for sex. Teen parents and youth living in low-income neighborhoods. When you provide youth opportunities to build successful futures, our entire community benefits. Help be part of their success. 

Janus celebrates diversity and values the contributions made by every staff to help the children, youth and families we serve. All positions involve working with strong, supportive teams to make a difference in a young person's life. 


Janus offers transfer and promotion opportunities, training on the job, time off plans and a very strong benefit package for benefited positions.
