Description/Responsibilities: 
Shelterwood is a Christian therapeutic boarding school for at-risk teenagers. We are hiring college graduate men and women for a one-year paid staff internship. Our interns live and work with the at-risk teenagers in Shelterwood (www.shelterwood.org). It's an intense program, but one where life-change takes place and our interns grow tremendously in their faith and ministry skills during their year of service. We have a staff of licensed counselors who meet regularly with the students and their parents. Our counselors also work with the Shelterwood interns during the year. Many of our interns come with degrees in psychology, youth ministry and social work, but in fact many who come with a variety of degrees tremendously impact our youth. The common denominator is a passion to help struggling teens. Interns receive a year of practical training and instruction, as well as hundreds of hours of experience working with teenagers with a variety of emotional and social issues.
Requirements/Qualifications:
