Support An Intern
At-risk youth stipend
The Beat Within (a program of Pacific News Service)
Youth incarceration is driven largely by family and community poverty. The paid internships we offer provide released youth who are on probation with earned money, job skills, mental health support and a caring community.
$100 will cover an individual youth's stipend for one week. Youth will develop their typing skills. They will learn the whole production process for The Beat Within weekly magazine. Youth will also work in an environment with a diverse group of adult and youth staff all working to better the community. Most internships last 12-20 weeks.
