Amazing Kids. Amazing Place. Amazing Team.

At The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh, we build our legacy on being “amazing.” After more than a century of the highest quality care and service to children and their families, we are forever proud of our team members who don’t just make a career here – they make a difference.

From our outpatient physical and behavioral health services, to our educational services, family support services, and more, we’re grateful for the many passionate individuals who dedicate their expertise, time, and talent to our amazing kids and families.

The Children’s Institute is a mission-focused organization, and our long-term success in serving kids and families is rooted in hiring and retaining the most talented team who is passionate about making a difference. Organizational goals focus on developing each team member’s knowledge and expertise within a collaborative framework to make an impact on kids and families that lasts a lifetime.

The Children’s Institute offers a wide variety of career opportunities at our main campus in Squirrel Hill and several satellite locations in the Pittsburgh region. Direct care positions include physical, occupational, and speech language therapists; special education teachers and aides; board-certified behavior analysts and behavior technicians; behavioral health therapists; and family support services professionals. High-energy team members are also part of our information systems, marketing and development, plant operations, scheduling, and administrative teams. 

“While every team member brings a unique set of talents and skills, our team members also have many characteristics in common,” says Monica Smith, talent on-boarding and engagement specialist. “First and foremost, they all love kids. As team players, they bring excitement, creativity, and a playful spirit to their roles, balanced with the responsibility they hold to improve the quality of life for those we serve.” 

Ensuring an amazing team is a top priority for The Children’s Institute and is one of the three goals of our Vision 2023 strategic plan.

At the heart of every team member at The Children’s Institute is the mission – To Heal. To Teach. To Empower. To Amaze. Together, we strive to do our best work so kids and families can live their best lives.
