The Bridging the Gap Program engages and provides support to Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth at risk of homelessness. Our program aims to improve health and wellness outcomes for young people who have experienced adversities by providing direct support, enhancing existing programs and services, and building a network of community providers. We do this by utilizing The Jewish Board''s continuum of community-based and residential trauma treatment programs. Direct services include peer outreach & support; psychoeducation and skill building groups; vocational & educational services; and care coordination/linkage to needed community supports.
The BTG Intern will facilitate educational and support groups, assist with our referral and intake process, complete periodic assessments and potentially offer 1:1 mentorship. They will attend team meetings, trainings and participate in data collection and reporting efforts.
