Led by youth who have had a parent incarcerated, Project WHAT! raises awareness about children with incarcerated parents with the long-term goal of improving services and policies that affect these children. WHAT! stands for We’re Here And Talking, which is exactly what the team is doing. Over 7 million children have a parent on parole, probation, or incarcerated. The program employs young people who have experienced parental incarceration as the primary curriculum content developers and facilitators for trainings.
In order to work with Project WHAT!, at least one of your parents MUST have been incarcerated at some point in your life, and YOU must be willing to speak publicly about how their incarceration affected your life. These are PAID part-time positions. Pay starts at $8/hour for the summer training. If you complete the summer training, you will be paid $10/hour at the beginning of the school year, and can work your way up to $12/hour. A one-year commitment is required.
Deadline: March 30, 2012
