We are always looking for supportive, nurturing homes for our youth to live in during their time with Youth Progress. Proctor parents provide support and supervision to clients in the evenings and on weekends. Proctor parents help implement client treatment plans by providing continuity with skill-building, independent living, opportunities for increased responsibility in the community and other areas of a client’s treatment plan. We also have the need for respite care parents. Respite parents act as a proctor parent for short stays, relieving the proctor parent for an occasional break.
Youth Progress offers a variety of settings to fit volunteer interests and needs; from helping with client-based activities and life-skills to assisting with administrative duties in our office. We can also accommodate individuals or groups depending on area of interest. If you would like to volunteer or receive more information about these opportunities please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Youth Progress has opportunities for student interns in several of our program settings. Depending on the student’s area of study, potential internships are available in education, direct human service, and non-profit administration/development. The majority of interns at Youth Progress are in a Masters level program for counseling or social work. As part of an internship, individuals are provided with opportunities to observe and interact with youth in the milieu setting, lead individual and group therapy, participate in professional trainings, develop skills related to assessment and evaluation, and participate in individual and group supervision.
