Opportunity: Independent Contractor

Opportunity Profile

General Information

Opportunity Name:
Independent Contractor
Summary of Opportunity:
Mosaic is a provider agency for adults with intellectual disabilities. We have three group homes and a day center where individuals in service with us come during the day for activities, socialization and outings. We also provide a wide variety of services to adults with disabilities in the Brazos county area who live in their own home/apartment or with their families.

We rely on what are called "Independent Contractors" to provide transportation and/or other services in the individual's home such as assisting with activities of daily living or just spending time together in the community. Independent contractors get paid at a rate starting at 9 dollars an hour, but hours are usually as needed and flexible. Because of this, it is almost like a volunteer position with a small reimbursement, making it a great opportunity for a busy college student who wants to give back to the community while making a little extra spending money (Guac is extra, you know!)
