Have you ever heard a young person exclaim, “There’s nothing to do! I’m bored.”? Summers are a perfect time to prove them wrong AND give them something to do that has purpose and meaning! PREP hires summer interns and finds opportunities for them to engage in their communities through as many area events and festivals as we can.
By partnering with agencies and businesses, PREP is able to pay interns to ‘volunteer’ for others while representing PREP at the same time. Youth are encouraged to talk openly about the importance of having comprehensive sex education during conversations they have with attendees. While this is important work, it’s also just as important that they have FUN and show their community that they can be willing, active participants with something to offer. Maybe, just maybe, the interns will discover a ‘spark’ that will ignite their passions for future generations.
We look forward to getting more youth involved in ways that connect them to their community, teach them some life skills, and shine a light on this valuable resource we have right here in our valley. If you know of any youth who may be interested or know of an event that needs little worker-bees, please contact PREP at [email protected].
