The Harbor House Youth Leadership Program will develop and encourage high school students in Oakland to be agents of positive change in their community. Participants will have opportunities to discover and use their inherent gifts and talents, develop safe and caring relationships with peers, adults, and mentor students in our K-5 after school program. In our monthly trainings, interns will receive the encouragement, tools, and resources they need to finish high school and go on to higher education.
• Interns will attend regular training sessions to develop their skills in classroom management, curriculum, program planning, conflict resolution, and personal development.
• Interns will have regular check-ins with Harbor House staff to get performance feedback as well as talk about grades and any academic or social needs they have.
• Interns will have access to other enriching opportunities, including field trips, youth nights, and fundraisers.

All interns who complete an entire term, attending two days per week with no more than two absences, will receive a $500 stipend from Harbor House. Payout will be as follows:
February 20, 2018 - $100 | April 5, 2018 - $150 | June 5, 2018 - $250
Harbor House interns are expected to attend the internship every day that it is in session. In the event that an intern cannot be present for work on a given day, the intern is expected to notify Harbor House staff at least 24 hours before the start of the next program day. Interns are also required to attend a 1.5 hour monthly training. Absences will need to be made up and can be done so at one of our Saturday Work Days in February or June.
