Youth Action Team Internships

Youth Action Team Internship

Community | Spirituality | Justice | Power

The Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center offers high school juniors and seniors an opportunity called Youth Action Team Internship! During an academic year, our interns learn about the principles of community organizing through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching and engage in building their own social movement around an issue facing the youth of Seattle.

Built on the belief that everyone has the capacity to be a leader in their community, this internship offers formation and workshops to elevate the leadership gifts of each individual student. Throughout the internship, students cultivate deep relationship with one another and the community, learn about their own identity and the identities of their peers, engage in diverse spiritual practices, and learn how to work as a team of community organizers. It is the primary goal of the co-facilitators of this internship that all elements of the internship are student centered. Meaning, the program always factors the needs, concerns, and interests of students into its development and curriculum. The purpose of this method is to ensure that every intern leaves each session believing they are powerful and capable of social change!
