Prevention Summer Internship - Can You Help?

The Eastern Washington Area Health Education Center (EWAHEC) at EWU plans to host a summer internship opportunity for high school students, tentatively named AHEC Prevention, and they need your help.  This program is targeted at high school students ages 16 and up who live in rural areas and are low-income or black, indigenous, or people of color (BIPOC). Interns would be placed at a CPWI location near their home, and would be working 15 hours per week for 4 weeks (60 total hours).  This is your opportunity to provide career exposure to prevention work AND behavioral health careers for a  young person.

There is no cost to your CPWI site to participate.  The interns will be doing service learning and helping with initiatives at your site by doing social media campaigns, helping with trainings, or similar work with your organization. The EWAHEC is providing volunteer shirts, transportation costs, and a participant stipend to students who complete the internship.

If your CPWI site would like to participate, please contact Krista Loney ( for more information.”
