Womankind Social Work Internship 2022

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Womankind

Womankind works with survivors of gender-based violence to rise above trauma and build a path to healing. Through the power of relationships, we strive to help survivors achieve internal harmony and develop a renewed sense of belonging.

Program:

Project Free - anti-human trafficking services.

2022 Internship Description:

There has a been increase of human trafficking survivors needing services when they are not working during the day and, as such, this particular internship will focus on providing support to human trafficking survivors in need of support outside of traditional business hours (Mondays through Fridays 9am-5pm). These non-traditional hours will all count towards the internship and the Project Free Manager will work with the intern to create some consistency in their own schedule and flexibility during their school year.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to keep both clients and interns safe, the intern will provide mainly remote individual sessions, with potential for any in-person needs at one of our Community Offices, comprised of an intake and needs assessment and emotionally supportive counseling and case management. The intern will be guided by the Moving Ahead Positively (MAP) model, a trauma-informed and person centered approach developed by Womankind. The intern will not diagnose clients.

During more traditional hours and especially at the beginning of the internship, the intern will also have the opportunity to engage in the following activities:

  1. Attend both internal and external trainings to help support survivors of human trafficking and, broadly, gender based violence.
  2. Attend any macro-level meetings (task forces, advocacy-oriented meetings, legislative meetings).

As a Project Free intern, they will receive (based on the school’s own needs):

  1. Orientation from the Project Free Manager (PFM)
  2. Supervision from the PFM: 1-1.5 hours weekly
  3. Practice assignments
  4. Process recording feedback
  5. Group supervision with other interns: TBD internally
  6. Time on their own for administrative items and conduct any of their own due diligence and research on a topic

Language preferences (preferred): Tagalog

Intern Specifications: We anticipate only hosting one student for the internship; Preferably someone in their second year of their graduate program; Two semesters are needed with a six month minimum.
