We are seeking social work students who are passionate about helping young people enact their individual and collective power. Our ideal mentors are sensitive to the challenges our students face while also believing in the child’s ability to thrive in the face of these challenges. We encourage students to apply who are excited about practicing anti-oppressive skills in a variety of settings.
At The Arthur Project, social work students collaborate with mentees to develop and achieve individualized goals along five dimensions:
- School and Career
- Health and Wellness
- Family, Friends, and Relationships
- Community and Culture
Students work toward their goals in their individual counseling sessions, in afterschool groups, and in community-based Saturday activities. We accept interns who want to complete field hours from Monday through Saturday.
