Great Internship opportunity for SOC majors

Seeking male & female facilitators for unique internship with Expect Respect, a program of SAFE!

Are you a college-aged (18-25) actor, facilitator, or activist? Are you interested in working as an unpaid intern in a Theatre for Dialogue program raising awareness about teen dating violence and unhealthy relationships?

This internship is available for Fall 2016 and requires a commitment of 10 hours/ week. Interest in prevention education, youth programming, social work, applied theatre or social justice is preferred. No previous acting experience is necessary.

This Theatre for Dialogue program examines the struggles between two seniors as they make decisions about their life after high school and their relationship. The format of the program includes scenes and monologues from the characters, and dialogue with the teen audience about healthy and unhealthy dating behaviors, creating boundaries, and navigating problems in relationships.  We are seeking 2 females and 1 male actor-facilitators to fulfill these roles.

The intern must be available for 1-2 weekly meetings (daytime or evening TBD) to build prevention and facilitation skills and rehearse the program. In October we will perform the program in high school classrooms across the Austin area!
