Details
Description Interns: Interns work directly with Progress Ranch counselors to provide care and support to foster youth ages 6-14 years old. This requires working with the boys, being able and willing to perform a wide variety of tasks. The position is perfect for those that are working towards working in a field related to mental health, child development and sociology. This position requires individuals with good communication skills, patience and respect towards others. They would be working under direct supervision from a senior counselor. The shift would involve participating in and designing age appropriate activities, cooking, tutoring and supervision of the boys alongside a Progress Ranch staff member. Interns would never be expected to be alone with the children or to transport the children. All interns would need to pass a live scan background check and show proof of TB clearance and sign a confidentiality agreement.
