Student Position Available, WellRoot

This exciting project is facilitated by WellRoot, Georgia’s longest-serving family welfare organization with a commitment to breaking the cycle of trauma in the lives of teens and young adults. This project will create resources for schools and youth serving organizations to better equip staff and children who are struggling or may struggle with trauma or adverse childhood experiences.

In Georgia, 250,000 children have a parent who has been incarcerated, 160,000 children are not living with a parent, 40,000 K-12 children are experiencing homelessness, 11,000 are in foster care and 6,000 are in detention facilities. These children need support in and out of school.  

This project seeks to develop specific tools and trainings to help guide the implementation of evidence-based practices to address trauma, build resiliency and support positive youth development in a variety of youth settings.  A comprehensive self-assessment and planning tool will be developed to help sites evaluate their current status, develop an improvement plan and galvanize the organizational support necessary for change. 

Skills needed for this project include survey design experience, research skills in literature reviews and key informant interviews, organizational skills and clear written communication.  The project will require 10-20 hours per week with most work done off-site. 

This project has the potential of becoming a national model.
