A residential school in Pennsylvania, the Milton Hershey school provides a top-notch education to students from families of lower income. During their time at the Milton Hershey School, students stay in home-like environments with eight to 12 other students of their same gender and age group, and are cared for by houseparents. Becoming a houseparent can be a rewarding career choice for people who enjoy working with young people.
Houseparents assist with school work and activities, and helping students maintain the shared living environment. Working as a houseparent can give individuals the satisfaction of knowing they have had a meaningful impact on the lives of youth.
