High Desert State Prison, in Indian Springs, and Florence McClure Correctional Center in Las Vegas are hiring full-time Athletic and Recreational (A&R) Specialists. The A&R Specialist will evaluate existing athletic and recreational activities and develop or revise programs based on the cultural diversity and the physical/emotional limitations of the inmate population, and the equipment and athletic facilities available; assess the physical and emotional benefits of various activities; and survey inmate interests. The incumbent will provide a broad range of athletic and recreational programs for inmates including sports, weight-training, hobby/crafts, social groups, academic and self-help education, and/or other activities; recruit and schedule inmates; prepare rosters; provide instruction and explain rules; obtain and set up equipment; provide programs at various security levels including developing special programs for individual inmates; and observe established safety and security measures in order to maintain control and set limits appropriate to the facility and inmate population.
