The internship can be full time (40 hours) to supplement training received in a related field or part-time (at least 50%) as part of a training program in the Austin area. Internships are offered for Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters. Each internship must last at least 10 weeks (8n summer), ideally at least 13 weeks, and can be extended by up to 3 months. We offer internship specialties to go with the various functional groups at SYM: * social work (we practice practical strengths-based solution focused work and harm reduction and can arrange a licensed supervisor) * pastoral ministry (we are Christian and offer our clients Bible studies, worship events, prayer, and Christian guidance counseling) * communications (we publish a newsletter per week to almost 5000 people, blog and publish social media) * multimedia (photograph and video and social media and key to telling the stories of our clients) * development (fundraising and partnership development) * food and nutrition (we feed 3000 people meals annually) * textile recovery (we redirect from landfills almost $80,000 per year in donated material for our clients and operate a small but free clothing store for our clients). Interns will receive leadership training and choose one of the above specialties. Full-time interns will: * Receive weekly tutoring from Terry in the curriculum, text, and on the street (spring and fall only). * Learn to successfully perform safe street outreach * Learn to successfully operate a drop-in center * Learn volunteer and material management and the important art of thanking people * Receive regular feedback from Terry after helping with weekly ministry activities (prayer time, Bible study time, fellowship time, street outreach) * Learn to lead at least one of our regular ministry activities with street youth * Define and lead with other interns a weekly ministry event (e.g., sports time, craft time, cooking time) * Participate with and help lead all service projects * Participate in behind the scenes logistics including fundraising, material management, and record-keeping * Learn to use a leading edge database platform used by 100,000's of nonprofits around the world * Define and execute a personal project lasting a month to improve our ministry to street youth (spring and summer only) * Receive letters of support in terms of volunteer hours and experience * Receive a letter of recommendation upon successful completion of at last 80% of the internship What Does it Look Like The internship can be part time or full time. Our part-time program is designed to provide training with participation in one weekly training session and leading one weekly event. Our full-time program is designed to provide more in-depth training sessions and realistic work-experiences, working both in direct services and behind the scenes daily. Interns immediately begin hands-on training with Terry by anchoring key events each week. And they meet weekly with Terry to cover a real-world curriculum developed by SYM to cover hard-hitting and difficult topics any leader will encounter when leading his or her church in poverty ministries. If supervised by a separate church pastor, we are able to support interns receiving credit for a clinical pastoral internship at local seminaries. Our text for the study is by JT Fest, "Street Culture: An epistemology of street-dependent youth." Our curriculum is developed by SYM to train young pastoral candidates in issues they will face leading their congregations in any street, homeless, or poverty ministry. The course covers 13 topics: street youth culture, causes of street life, solution-based / strength based counseling, change theory, crisis intervention, specific issues (STIs, hepatitis C, MRSA, chemical dependency & abuse), engagement, loving with boundaries, attitudes and foundational values, referrals and partnership, loving with boundaries, creating safety for church and clients, and biblical foundations Our target intern candidates come from several sources: * Young pastoral candidates who want training specifically designed to deal with the tough issues associated with leading poverty ministries at churches. * Youth work students who want to spend a summer or semester volunteering full time to beef-up their experience, training, and resume. * Students wanting to pursue a career in social enterprises or non-profits who want practical experience with volunteer management, using social media for a cause, and development work with supporters of an organization. * Social work students who want to spend a summer or semester gaining experience and training with the difficult issues of case management, strengths-based programs, and brief therapy. * Students needing to take a semester off to find themselves and align their life plans. * Our spring and fall internships require at least the equivalent of an associates degree. Our summer internships require at least a mature rising junior in high school. What About Money We supply a small stipend to our full-time interns. Part-time interns are prorated. Full-time interns may self-fund or raise funds for needs above the stipend. We help our full-time interns raise funds prior to coming on board.
