Reading for Peace

Conflict_Center The Conflict Center

Conflict is an opportunity to solve problems and build relationships.

The Conflict Center’s (TCC) focus is on group, classroom and community level prevention and intervention services, serving people of all ages. TCC offers a wide range of direct and indirect service assignments in the programs outlined below. We are looking for interns who have an interest in learning both direct and indirect tasks to impact a specific program area. Internships are tailored to meet both the agency’s and intern’s needs.

Reading for Peace:  This is TCC’s most well-established and long-standing program, offered to elementary schools throughout the metro area. Volunteers are recruited to go to these schools and read children’s books to the students and discuss the skills and concepts taught by TCC. Interns can participate in this program on Thursday afternoons and/or help to coordinate and train volunteers and participate in outreach to schools.

Requirements

All interns are required to complete a basic background check prior to starting any training or assignments. A more extensive fingerprint background check may also be required for those interns working intensively in Denver Public Schools. Interns are also expected to “walk the talk” utilizing the skills we teach to communicate directly, use creative problem solving skills and help to build a healthy and supportive work environment.

Training

The following trainings are available to all interns and will be tailored based on individual interests, scheduling and assignments:

  • Adult Skill Building class series
  • Weekend Train the Trainer series
  • Three-day Restorative Practices series
  • Additional assignment specific training sessions
  • TCC requests that interns commit to a minimum of 2 semesters/3 quarters or a full academic year
