Why Choose Us

Join Our Team!

Employment at Jumpstart Autism Center is more of a learning experience than a job, and the skills you learn at JAC have a positive effect on your for the rest of your life! New team members should be outgoing, energetic and be willing to play with kids; we’ll help you learn the skills that you’ll use in turn to help these children. JAC employees have the opportunity to make a difference in their clients’ lives every day.


All JAC staff need to earn their Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) Certificate; we provide the necessary training and evaluations for you to qualify. You’ll learn new ways to teach children and adolescents necessary skills and effective ways to manage behaviors. Our training involves coaching and mentoring to improve your intervention skills. The training is fast-paced and will home your skills that allow you to actively engage clients through their sessions.

After your intensive training period is complete—typically 1.5 to 2 months for part-time employees—you will be asked to participate in monthly staff training (around 1.5 hours a month) that will continue your training process.

Behavioral Interventionist

Becoming a Behavioral Interventionist—including earning your RBT Certificate—is not a job for everyone, but if you choose to take on the challenge of learning how to implement highly effective ABA interventions, it will become an experience you cherish.

JAC requires a one-year commitment from our Behavioral Interventionists (BI). Available positions are listed below. We appreciate your interest in our organization and in improving the lives of children everywhere.
