Meaningful Work Opportunities Are Available


What we do..

We’re a small non-profit that works with adults with mental illness.  Check out the rest of our website to learn more about our organization and how we work.  The short-version of it: we’re a non-profit primarily run by individuals with a history of mental illness.

Our job is to create a supportive “learning environment” where our member-volunteers can gain skills and confidence as they work to regain or maintain their mental wellness.  We have a small program staff (about 8 people) and we have about 60 members who volunteer with us each day.



"It's about gaining confidence, it's about becoming successful within yourself..."

Role of a mission systems Coach...

We’re looking for someone who can be our “Mission Systems Coach”.  What’s that mean? You’d be responsible for connecting the dots between the big-picture mission (improving the lives of adults with mental illness) and the day-to-day work that we do.  You’ll primarily do this as the administrator of our database. We don’t expect you to already know this platform (though it would be great if you did).  We have people on staff who know the system.  You can learn from them.  Our database is in-use at several other non-profits that need help (admin support, data clean-up, data-loading, etc).  You’d spend some of your time coaching our friends at those non-profits as well.

As a Mission Systems Coach you’ll be responsible for becoming our main / data person.  The demands would be rewarding and your responsibilities would include:

  • Customize / run reports

  • Analyze and manage data

  • Perform administrative changes

  • Help identify more technical needs and possibly oversee technical work that will be performed by contractors

  • Help our colleagues at similar non-profits with their data needs

You’ll also be responsible for teaching our volunteers to do the same things that you learn.  Our members have a variety of skills and goals and our staff members work with our members in completing the work of our non-profit.  Ultimately, your role is about 70% coaching our volunteers, and 30% actually working on things yourself.   To see what it is like to work at a clubhouse, please watch the video on the careers page of our website.

Future Growth

Our goal is to push the envelope with technology to make us a stronger non-profit. 

You’ll be encouraged to think of new ideas and be provided with leeway to explore other solutions or projects which you think are valuable.  Software-based projects that interest us include:
  • Exploration of marketing automation tools that can be used in conjunction with our donor database
  • Migration of our desktops / laptops into a virtual desktop environment on the AWS cloud
  • Creation of a mobile app that can be used by our non-profit and our sister non-profits
  • Creation of a standardized WordPress theme that can be shared with our sister non-profits
Who is the perfect candidate for this job: You have a passion for technology and think it can make the world a better place.  You’re excited to learn new software and want to push the envelope on what’s possible at a small organization.  You want to do new things each day, and to constantly learn.  You have lots of ideas, and want to work somewhere where your creativity is valued.  You’re excited about our mission and want to coach others to learn about technology.   You want to help change the face of mental health in Texas.




The San Antonio Clubhouse is accepting applications for the Clubhouse Leadership Intern Program (CLIP).  CLIP participants are afforded an opportunity to learn non-profit leadership skills at one of San Antonio’s most-exciting and rewarding non-profit organizations.


The San Antonio Clubhouse is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that follows the clubhouse recovery model, which is in-use at over 330 clubhouses through-out the world.  The model contributes to the recovery of individuals with mental illnesses through an environment that provides rewarding volunteer opportunities.

Individuals who participate in the Clubhouse are called “members.”  Fundamental elements of member participation include openness and choice in type of work activities, choice in staff, and a lifetime right of re-entry and access to all clubhouse services.  The clubhouse does not perform “traditional” mental health activities, such as therapy.  Our approach to mental health recovery is simple: to work with our members in whatever capacity they want to volunteer, and to help them reach their goals.  We do this together as a clubhouse community, where members are free to work with other members or our support staff, as they choose.  The San Antonio Clubhouse is open 8AM to 4PM, Monday through Friday, and is open to adults with a mental health diagnosis.


The Clubhouse Leadership Intern Program (CLIP) is an opportunity to perform transformative work in support of mental health, while also learning about the inner-workings of a strong non-profit.  You’ll be part of a small, friendly, and close-knit team.  The primary responsibility of CLIP interns is to create meaningful work for clubhouse members, ensuring that they are working as part of a team with other members in the daily operation of the clubhouse.

This opportunity will suit enthusiastic, compassionate, and self-motivated team players with a strong work ethic.  You’ll be working alongside clubhouse members and staff to ensure that our teams are operating effectively.  Interns will participate in all aspects of the Clubhouse, including unit work and support coordination.  Interns will learn every aspect of the Clubhouse operation.  80%-90% of your time will be spent on 1 or 2 teams, but you will have the opportunity to rotate through all teams in the clubhouse as part of the CLIP internship.



Assistance and Mentorship Program: The Assistance and Mentorship Program (AMP) focuses on providing services to other clubhouses in Texas, and throughout the world.  Through AMP, we provide technical support and consulting services to other non-profits.  Our services range from website design, mobile app configurations, training/mentorship, and development/grantwriting.

  • The technical assistance track is great for you if you have an interest in web design, application development, or digital marketing.

  • The mentorship track is great for you if you have an interest in consulting, training, organizational design, instructional design, curriculum development, or just helping organizations grow. Resumes due by May 20, 2017


Clubhouse Texas: Clubhouse Texas  advocates for mental health rights at the state level.  As an intern in the Clubhouse Texas program, you’ll have a chance to coordinate with other clubhouses in the state (Austin, Houston, San Angelo), and to help develop relationships with other clubhouses and with state officials.  Clubhouse Texas is a new program with a goal of expanding the clubhouse model throughout the state, and ultimately the southwestern United States.  If you’re interested in policy, advocacy, and doing work that makes a difference in more than one community, then this opportunity is for you. Resumes due by May 20, 2017
