Project Abstract

The presentation will provide an insight to prospective DePaul’s Family and Community Services (FCS) interns about the agency. FCS is a clinic at DePaul University that strives to uplift and assist children and their families that experience various mental health problems. Spheres in which FCS works to help children and their families are all derived from evidence-based techniques fueled with a stout awareness of the children's culture. Children and families that frequent FCS have access to various services including different forms of counseling, psychotherapy services, testing/evaluations, and school programs, just to name a few. A school program at FCS that promotes mentorship connections is the CITIES Project. The CITIES Project seeks to assist Chicago school children from various age groups living in neighborhoods with a low socioeconomic status. The children are served through the various activities and lessons that school liaisons, supervisors, and mentors hold. Activities include various art, media, physical activity, and STEM-related projects to help promote the children’s emotional well-being. Information regarding FCS and the CITIES Project’s mission, description, intern responsibilities, and more are also communicated in the presentation. The presentation will conclude with a discussion about the steps needed to apply and the interview process for prospective FCS interns.
