TITLE: Development Intern

ORGANIZATION: Daly City Youth Health Center/Jefferson Union High School District

REPORTS TO: Development Coordinator of Daly City Youth Health Center

HOURS: Minimum of 10 - 15 hours a week for 5 to 6 months (August - December 2016)


The Daly City Youth Health Center believes in the potential of all young people, and with a little help and guidance, they can make smart decisions that set them on track for a healthy and productive life. Young people today are dealing with tough problems including pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse, stress, bullying and even suicide. The risk is greater in northern San Mateo County where at least a third of our young people live in poverty and many are immigrants facing language and cultural barriers. Many don’t know where to get the help and support they need.

For 26 years Daly City Youth Health Center has prepared our communities’ teens and young adults for a healthy and productive adulthood. The Health Center is a school-linked program of the Jefferson Union High School District in collaboration with a medical clinic operated by the San Mateo Medical Center. The Health Center provides free, confidential and culturally sensitive primary medical care, mental health counseling, health and career education to adolescents aged 12-24 years of age.
