Co-Facilitate Youth Support Groups

Build skills in social work, group facilitation, and intercultural communication while forming wonderful relationships that have a direct impact on the lives of low-income youth who will see new possibilities for their futures because of having known you!

Co-facilitate weekly support group curriculum with a certified staff member by:

  • Engaging in positive conversations with teens on an individual basis regarding topics that are shared with the group.  
  • Planning activities such as check-ins, skills building activities, craft activities, and reflection.
  • Assisting in planning and chaperoning field trips.  

Opportunities available at low-income housing sites in North and Southeast Portland on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3-5pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-7:30pm.  Commitment to one shift per week for 6 months preferred.

Men and Spanish-speakers strongly encourage to apply, but any adult able to connect with youth and support their discovery of their own gifts and resilience are welcome!
