About

~ Youth Support Specialist (OVERNIGHT dorm mentors) - "The most vital position in all of Sisu Youth Programming." YSS’s are highly trained and vetted volunteers that work directly with youth enrolled in the emergency shelter "Dorm" program. Without yet having the large funding to hire paid staff, YSS’s are the power behind Sisu Youth being able to offer shelter to the hundreds of teens facing homelessness each night in the metro area. YSS trainees must be age 25 or older, or currently a student/employee in a behavioral/health/youth-related field. The background check fee is $25, no other training fees are required. National Certifications in Medical First-Aid, Trauma Informed Care and Mental Health First-Aid are issued upon completion of each training. A Youth Support Specialist Certificate will be issued upon completion of all 6 components of the YSS Training Program.
