Are you a positive, passionate go-getter looking to make a meaningful difference in your community this summer? Do you want to help make the world a safer, brighter place for youth in need? If so – Street Yoga wants to hear from you!

ABOUT STREET YOGA
At Street Yoga, our mission is to connect youth facing adversity with the healing benefits of trauma-sensitive yoga and mindfulness. We empower children and teens struggling with adverse childhood experiences – from homelessness to addiction – to reclaim their agency, make healthy choices and move toward a life that is inspired, safe and joyful. Last year, we served more than 500 young people in the Greater Seattle Area with trauma-informed yoga classes andtrained hundreds of professionals in cities across the United States to do the same.

ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
Street Yoga is looking for a collaborative, proactive and creative individual with an interest in nonprofit fundraising/event planning to support a variety of core projects this summer. The intern will play an integral role in our small-but-mighty team – helping us to grow, innovate and deepen our impact in the community!
