Clinical Psychology Team Lead at Psychological Services Center at Envision Education
Bay Area, California
About the job
The Psychological Services Center (PSC) at Envision Education is seeking three highly talented clinicians to
serve as clinical team leads with Envision Schools. Positions may be filled by predoctoral interns, postdoctoral
fellows, psych assistants, MFT interns, and/or a clinician from a related field.
WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to transform the lives of students - especially those who will be the first in their family to attend
college - by preparing them for success in college, career, and life.
At Envision Education, we believe the current achievement gap reflects a systemic failure to understand how
kids learn, what motivates them to learn, and what they need in order to learn well. We know that vibrant
learning communities apply compassion and high expectations to inspire and empower students. With a
population that is 75% first-generation college bound, our approach is specifically designed to increase student
engagement, deepen integration and understanding, promote active learning, and ensure college success.
Envision Education is a national model for using Project Based Learning and Performance Assessment to
prepare students for success in college and in life. Envision Education currently operates three small high
schools and one middle school. We will be opening our second middle school in Oakland, CA in Fall 2019.
Graduates go on to succeed in college at significantly higher rates than their peers: 99% attend college and 85%
persist once they get there.
We believe that deeper learning experiences challenge students to think critically, solve problems resourcefully,
and collaborate productively. Students have an opportunity to use these skills and show what they know through
portfolio defenses. In 8th, 10th and 12th grade, Envision students present a defense of learning, demonstrating
their growth and learning. Similar to a master’s thesis defense, these presentations are required to graduate in
12th grade and are invaluable in preparing for life after high school. They practice for these defenses through
regular exhibitions and in-class presentations. Our students say portfolio defense is the hardest thing they have
ever done, and nothing has prepared them more for college. Read about our approach here.
The PSC at Envision Education is a psychology training clinic dedicated to providing trauma-informed,
psychodynamically-oriented psychological services to youths. We are an anti-racist, LGBTQ+ affirming
organization committed to developing future psychologists who can use their clinical skills to dismantle barriers
of systemic racism and oppression. We are a school-based program, as we believe all children should have
access to high-quality, evidence-informed psychological care.
