Responsibilities

Description: Mobilization-
1.) Sponsors- To have regular, scheduled meetings with existing and potential Sponsors for the purpose of giving them information about how to effectively work with someone in the NLP in a healthy way within the boundaries of our program structure. This is not a meeting to extract information, but rather a time to provide information. Train and equip.
2.) Mentors- To Have regular, scheduled meetings with existing and potential Mentors for the purpose of giving them information about how to effectively work with someone in the NLP in a healthy way within the boundaries of our program structure. This is a good time to discuss some spiritual struggles the client may be having. Again, this isn’t a time to receive information, but rather a time to connect in a healthy way with a member of the clients support group.
3.) Teachers- Keep class schedule up to date, stay connected with current teachers, recruit new teachers and evaluate current classes by sitting in scheduled classes during the week.
Environment-
1.) House Safety- To facilitate encouragement among NLP, so that a healing environment is always maintained, so that a physical and spiritual safety is maintained.
2.) Communication- To have scheduled and regular dialog with house leadership for the purpose of healthy structure. To facilitate conversation so that healthy and fair choices can be made and so that all parties can feel valued and heard. Also to identify and delegate tasks to NLP employees and relevant volunteers.
3.) Program Structure- To continually refer to, and question program structure to ensure policies are relevant to the residents we serve. Also, to enforce action from any major rule violation, without deviating from what’s already in place, and to update/change policies (if needed), so that control of the program isn’t lost.

The NLP Manager must understand that their job isn’t to manage the men in the recovery program, but rather manage the program which includes staying connected, encouraging and equipping community volunteers who come in to work directly with the men. Also the NLP manager must organize, delegate, and supervise all NLP related staff members in any program related task.
