Apply to be a Psyc Peer Mentor! Application can be found here.
The psychology clinic has established a community service agency that provides undergraduate life skills trainers (and mentors) to school-aged youth with emotional and/or behavioral problems. The vast majority of these children are from a minority group living in poverty in Tucson and are struggling with a variety of emotional and behavior problems. We are currently accepting applications for Fall semester. As a LifeSTEP (Life Skills Training and Enhancement Program) intern, you would be meeting with your assigned youth about once a week for about 4 hours each time. Activities might include going to the movies, getting an 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 (393 or 493 depending on your U of A status), and you would have the opportunity to receive training in this area. If you are interested (and are at least 18 years old), please complete the attached application & email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are especially in need of male interns (due to the large number of older boys in desperate need of a positive role model), but we are also in need of many female interns as well!
