[CLOSED] Youth Mentor Intern

LifeSTEP (Life Skills Training and Enhancement Program) is currently accepting applications for the Spring 2023 semester.

The University of Arizona Psychology Department has established a community service agency that provides undergraduate life skills training and mentoring to school-aged youth. The vast majority of the youth are from a minority group living in poverty in Tucson, and are struggling with a variety of emotional and behavior problems. Interns have the opportunity to receive training in these area.

As a LifeSTEP intern, you would be meeting with your assigned youth about once a week for about four hours each time. Activities might include going to the movies, getting an ice cream, going bowling, or spending time at a park, etc. Interns are reimbursed for expenses including gas. Interns are eligible to earn three units of internship credit. LifeSTEP is especially in need of male interns.

LifeSTEP is based at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona and the internship will be completed in-person. To be considered, please submit an application to Julie Feldman at julief@arizona.edu
