LifeSTEP Internship Fall 2024


The psychology department has established a community service agency that provides undergraduate life skills training (and mentoring) to school-aged youth. The majority of these youth are from underrepresented groups living in poverty in Tucson and are struggling with a variety of psychological concerns (e.g., depression & anxiety). We are currently accepting applications for Fall semester. As a LifeSTEP (Life Skills Training and Enhancement Program) intern, you would meet with your assigned youth once a week for about 4 hours each time. Activities might include going to the movies, getting ice cream, going bowling or spending time at a park, etc (you would be reimbursed for your expenses including gas).  You would receive 3 units of internship credit, and you would have the opportunity to receive training in this area.  There is also the possibility of obtaining research-related experience if that is helpful. If you are interested (and are at least 18 years old), please complete the attached application & email it back to We are especially in need of male interns (due to the large number of older boys in desperate need of a positive role model), and we are also in need of female, nonbinary, and transgender interns as well!
