The approximate timeline of the sessions are as follows:

     

    • Fall Session: mid-August to mid-December
    • Spring Session: mid-January to mid-May

    Qualifications

    Both the Shelter and Anti-Human Trafficking (AHT) Programs have opportunities for group coordination each semester for skill development through the shelter groups and The Well Program for the AHT Program. Fellow(s) would coordinate with program staff to develop a curriculum for skill development for 5-8, 1-1.5 hour sessions (weekly or biweekly) throughout the semester. These curricula are meant to empower clients to build life skills and enhance their capacity to thrive in the community.  There are various opportunities for individuals with different expertise and backgrounds, but some examples of skill development curricula for workshops are below:

    • Health Education: development of curricula that includes education on prevention and information building to help clients be informed on healthy practices such as CPR; substance use prevention; STI prevention; information on heart health, diabetes, etc; and other health information components.
    • Employment Assistance: group facilitation that builds skills in resume building, interview skills, jobs research, and other components related to seeking employment.
    • Self-Care: group facilitation for The Well, a part of the Anti-Human Trafficking Program, in which the student facilitates a few groups on self-care and created sugar scrubs and other self-care/crisis intervention strategies with clients.
    • Healthy Shopping and Recipe Building: student helped clients to build a recipe book from their own experiences for healthy and easy meals to make at home and cooked them together in group as practice.
