Workshops are delivered to youth and youth-serving professionals throughout New York City. Volunteers assist in curriculum development, participant surveys, data entry, tabling events, and promoting Day One workshops.

Social Work Interns

Social Work Interns work directly with Day One's clients, providing counseling, support group facilitation, case management, and responding to our hotline. Interns are MSW candidates at accredited schools throughout New York City with an interest in working with survivors of trauma. Counseling is performed both onsite at Day One's offices and at the Bronx and Brooklyn Family Justice Centers. Bilingual is a bonus.

Note: Social Work Intern applications are only accepted in April to begin in the Fall semester.

Legal Services Interns

Legal Services Interns work alongside Day One's Supervising Attorney to litigate cases involving obtaining orders of protection, custody and visitation, immigration, housing, and school advocacy. Interns also conduct research on legal precedents related to teenagers, dating violence, and technology abuse.

Note: Must be a 2L or 3L at an accredited law school.
