LifeSTEP Internship Spring 2024

LifeSTEP Application

The psychology department has established a community service agency that provides undergraduate life skills training (and mentoring) to school-aged youth with emotional and/or behavioral problems.  The vast majority of these children are from an underrepresented group living in poverty in Tucson and are struggling with a variety of emotional and behavior problems. We are currently accepting applications for Spring semester.  As a LifeSTEP (Life Skills Training and Enhancement Program) intern, you would be meeting with your assigned youth about once a week for about 4 hours each time. Activities might include going to the movies, getting an ice cream, going bowling or spending time at a park, etc (you would be reimbursed for your expenses including gas).  You would receive 3 units (~125 hrs) of internship credit (or 6 if you wanted to be assigned 2 youths for 250 hrs), and you would have the opportunity to receive training in this area.  If you are interested (and are at least 18 years old), please complete the attached application & email it back to  We are especially in need of male interns (due to the large number of older boys in desperate need of a positive role model), but we are also in need of many female interns as well!
