Youth & Prevention Intern Turning Pointe Survivor Advocacy

Brief Job Description

In Summer 2022, Turning Pointe will offer expanded summer youth programming such as music exploration, teen songwriting, yoga, and gardening. These programs will help fill a gap for families and youth living in shelter as well as other youths whose families access services through Turning Pointe. Many of our programs will be rooted in prevention education and will focus on helping youth gain skills to enhance self-esteem, improve emotional expression and regulation, work on communication and self-advocacy, and other key healthy relationship skills. The youth & prevention intern is a new position that will play a key role in supporting these summer programs. Key tasks will include building healthy and responsive relationships with children, youth, and families in summer programs, providing one-on-one support to children and youth as needed, and assisting youth & prevention staff in program planning, coordination, implementation, and documentation. In this internship, you can expect to gain hands-on experience working with youth in a trauma-informed setting, learn about best practices in youth advocacy and prevention work, and become certified as a Washington State domestic violence and sexual assault advocate. This position is well-suited to someone interested in pursuing a career in social work, youth development, or a related field.
