Mission Statement

Directions for Youth and Families is an non profit organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of families in Columbus Ohio. We provide counseling, early childhood service and prevention programs. Our after-school program emphasizes leadership development and drug, alcohol and violence prevention while providing arts, fitness, nutrition and recreation activities.

Description

Our nutrition program is modeled after the MyPlate template. We provide the youth at our center with a full course meal prepared daily by staff using fresh, natural ingredients.

As a fitness and nutrition intern, you will work alongside our experienced staff and help prepare our nutrition program meals as well as assisting staff with fitness and recreation groups.

This is a high energy environment that currently serves between 50-70 at-risk youth per day.

Therefore, we need individuals who possess the following:

-1-2 yrs undergraduate focus in nutrition, exercise science, social work or related field.

-Self motivation and positivity

-Culturally sensitive and passionate about working with underserved at-risk populations

-Strong interpersonal and communication skills

Our program hours are M-F 3-7:30pm. We would ideally like this position to include a 10-20 hour per week commitment. All candidates would need to complete a background check.
