The African Community Center (ACC) is seeking a We Made This Art Therapy Intern. The We Made This Art Therapy Intern will assist the We Made This Lead and classroom instructors in implementing therapeutic art curriculum and measuring outcomes. This will include in-house art therapy sessions twice per month, and an offsite therapeutic art field trip at least once per month, as well as home visits to assess participants’ felt needs. The intern will also help with researching new places for field trips. The role will ultimately help to improve refugee lives by providing a much needed space to relax and feel safe. The intern may plan and lead art therapy sessions independently, or may support art therapy volunteer teachers in planning and instruction.
