VIEW JOBS 3/1/2020 9:53:44 PM 2020-05-30T21:53 <p><strong>Training-Youth Development Fellow: Youth Health Educator Program</strong></p> <p><strong>Opportunity:</strong> The Young Women's Project (YWP) is a dynamic, brave organization that develops leaders, takes on institutions, and builds youth power in DC. We are looking for a self-starter with a flexible skill set that includes youth development, training and facilitation, and research as well as a demonstrated commitment to youth adult partnership. We are a small, ambitious organization with a big agenda and limited resources. This is a great position for a recent college grad interested in graduate study in social work or public health. The fellowship is one-year in length with opportunities to join our permanent staff.</p> <p><strong>Organizational Background: </strong>The Young Women's Project builds the leadership and power of young people so that they can transform DC institutions to expand rights and opportunities for DC youth. Based in Washington, DC, YWP programs engage under-resourced youth of color, ages 14-24, with a focus on teen women, youth in foster care, and homeless youth. YWP work focuses on three DC youth realities: poverty, unemployment, and poor health outcomes. About 57% of our youth educators and 70% of our young adults live or go to school in Ward 7 and 8, communities that are disproportionately impacted by teen pregnancy, youth unemployment, and poor educational outcomes. Guided by these needs and opportunities, YWP is building a citywide network of youth educators and community problem solvers. Our model engages youth on three levels starting with self-advocacy. Youth staff and members build their skills in communication, problem solving, conflict resolution, goal setting) and guide them to advance their own rights and opportunities and navigate the complex systems of child welfare, education, and health care. Next, YWP employs youth and invests in their development as workers and community change agents. Last year, more than 250 youth worked 3-12 hours a week as educators, advocates, researchers, trainers, and community outreach workers. Youth work on teams and with a manger, apply their skills, develop professional behavior, put together a portfolio of work products, and earn a pay check. Third, youth and adult staff work side by side to create and advocate for policies and programs that increase youth rights, resources, and job opportunities. YWP's work is organized into two program areas, driven by long-term-system-change-focused goals.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Peer Health and Sexuality Education Project (PHASE)</strong> engages DC youth as peer educators and advocates who work to improve health outcomes and reduce unplanned pregnancy by expanding comprehensive sexuality education, ensuring access to community and school based health care, and developing supportive policies. As PHASE’s main program, <em>the Youth Health Educator Program (YHEP</em>) hires 250 youth each year from 24 DC public high schools who work in their schools and communities educating their peers, distributing condoms, and referring youth to clinics. Working in partnership with DC Public Schools and the Department of Health (DOH), YHEP educators earn $8.25 an hour for up to 6 hours a week and receive more than 50 hours of training in sexual health, STI/HIV prevention, peer education, contraception, LARCs, clinic referrals, counseling, facilitation, adult-youth partnership, project development, data collection and other issues. Last year we hired 246 youth who distributed 133,000 condoms and conducted 31,095 educational interventions reaching more than 7,000 youth and made 1,500 referrals to school based clinics. <strong>The Youth Poverty Program</strong> builds the power and leadership of system-identified and homeless youth -- training them as leaders and advocates, who work to expand educational and employment options, improve placement conditions, and expand youth rights. To address the needs of emancipating youth, YWP launched the Center for Youth Adults (CYA) in February 2017 to build the capacity and networks of 100 young adults each year who are emancipating from DC’s foster care system.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Position Summary</strong>: The YHEP Fellow will work as part of our sexual health education team that includes three full-time staff (Manager, Associate) in a 7 person organization.
