About

The Kings Against Violence Initiative School Program will serve youth in grades 9-12 by providing an in-school, single-sex empowerment and development program. Weekly workshops will seek to prevent and intervene in violence by supporting young people as they develop self-control, identity, healthy relationships, and an expanded awareness of their role in their own communities. KAVI will also provide academic support, mental health assessment and referral, and professional development.

KAVI is seeking adult (18+) workshop facilitators to run structured one-hour workshops, based off the KAVI curriculum, during the school day, at least once/week. A limited number of facilitators are needed to facilitate a program during Saturday school. A KAVI staff member will always be present. Facilitators may be asked to accompany the group on trips during school vacation times or weekends when available.

The ideal mentor has some background or experience working with teens in a youth development or educational context; however, if you have a passion for connecting with teens, we are open to a variety of backgrounds. We are seeking volunteers who are able to make a sustained commitment for the entire school year. KAVI works from a youth empowerment perspective; we seek to create a space and provide information for young people to make safe, healthy choices on their own. Our belief that they have an innate capacity to do so is at the heart of our work, and we expect all volunteers to work within this framework.

Facilitating for KAVI is a great way to gain skills in group facilitation and leadership, and gain access to professionals in the social services, non-profit leadership, and medical fields. The process to become a volunteer will include a background screening, references, and in-person interview with KAVI staff. All volunteers will be expected to attend 2 full days of training in late September and quarterly meetings.
