Stronger Together Internship
This summer Harbor House will offer a 5-week internship that meets 1-2 days a week, giving high school students the opportunity to have circle talks with other youth in their community and the police. The internship includes a tour of the Oakland Police Station, a ride along, and will end with a block party with the community and Oakland police.
We are STRONGER TOGETHER when everyone comes together to work for peace. The goal of this internship is to create better understanding between youth and law enforcement in Oakland so that we can be a stronger city.
The main focus of this internship is education and awareness. A secondary focus is relationship building, resiliency, and healing. We are looking to build a team of young people that are tired of just talking about racism, injustice, the police, and are ready to help be part of a solution! We will do that by creating opportunities for youth and police to interact and learn more about each other’s needs.
