Project Abstract

This presentation describes Max Bromberg’s internship experience at Youth Outreach Services (YOS) in Melrose Park, IL. The mission statement of YOS is to promote “the strengths and abilities of youth and families by providing community-based services that empower and enrich each to face life’s challenges with confidence, competence and dignity.” Max’s goal for their internship was to gain experience in the field in an organization that works with at risk and justice involved youth. Some, but not all, of the services that YOS provides include, substance use prevention and treatment, after school programing, summer employment programs, behavioral health counseling, group and family therapy, and crisis intervention. Some of the groups offered by YOS are art therapy and LGBTQIA+ groups in addition to activities and programs including game nights, cooking classes, community outings, and more. The presentation includes information to reach out to Max and to their manager at YOS to inquire about applying for future internships.
