Youth Leadership Internship

Youth Internship ProgramHarbor House youth programs follow the model of a family — a family that works, plays, and prays together. In the Harbor House family, high school interns in the Youth Leadership Internship are our older brothers and sisters, who learn directly from staff and volunteers and help to encourage and guide our younger siblings in the community.

Many high school youth in Oakland are disadvantaged from circumstances that offer them little direction in life and few figures who will act as positive mentors to help them take hold of the life that God has for them. Harbor House seeks to fill this gap through the Youth Leadership Internship, which is designed to educate, nurture, and empower young individuals who will become catalysts for positive change in our community.

Harbor House staff offer their love and guidance to high school youth, who in turn are entrusted with the responsibility to help lead activities and set positive examples for younger kids in our after-school programs. Interns benefit from this program through forming relationships with mentoring staff and volunteers, developing responsibility and job skills, and receiving a small monthly stipend.
