Safe Passage is committed to ending domestic violence and oppression in women's lives. We envision peace, prosperity, safety and justice for individuals, families and community, free of violence and coercion. To that end we serve as a leader and convener of individuals, organizations, businesses, and government in the broad work to address domestic violence and to work toward prevention. Since 1977 we have served survivors of domestic violence, their children, friends, and families. At Safe Passage it starts with hope. Hope, along with support, as both are essential in the journey from violence to safety. Our counseling, advocacy, shelter, support groups, and community education help build safe avenues toward safety and healing. We also have launched a new prevention program, Say Something, which operates under our belief that whoever you are, whatever your profession is, and whomever you come into contact with ? everyone can Say Something to help prevent interpersonal violence.
We are seeking an intern to work alongside the Community Engagement Coordinator to assist with tasks related to our Prevention Program, Say Something. Our intern would be responsible for social media posting, prevention research, general tasks related to on-going trainings, and new projects developed to support the program. There would also be an outreach component, including tabling, information sharing, and potential opportunities for facilitation/speaking.
