  1. Organization Overview: The National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives (NPSC) is a non-profit organization made up of scientists, educators, practitioners and clinicians, policy makers, foundation representatives, and affiliated organizations. We work in a nonpartisan manner with Congressional offices and Caucuses, and collaborate with like-minded groups and federal agency administrators (e.g., NIH, SAMHSA, ONDCP, OJJDP, CDC) in a mutual advisory capacity. Coalition members share a common goal of promoting validated science-based findings to wide-scale effective implementation of prevention practices and policies to improve the lives of children, adolescents, their families and communities. We work across sectors to address challenges in mental and behavioral health, education, poverty, juvenile and criminal justice, adverse environmental influences and social conditions that contribute to chronic illness and social ills. Our work includes congressional briefings, major projects, and informative products such as policy papers, op-eds, and fact sheets for the public and private sectors. Job Qualifications Accepting an undergraduate/graduate student or volunteer interested in public policy, federal advocacy, and any areas of our concern (see above). Candidate must have excellent research, organization, oral and written communication skills. Familiarity with Prevention Science and an interest in poverty concerns is required.

Develop policy-related fact sheets, op-eds, and policy briefs on topics related to our mission, specifically poverty. Provide staff with support in research and analysis of various topics, organizations, and key players in the field. Attend conferences, briefings, and forums as a representative of the NPSC. Assist with our newly developed poverty project Provide any other support to the Co-Directors and staff as needed. Anticipated Time Commitment (hours per week): Minimum 5 hours per week (volunteer); minimum 10 hours per week (student) Compensation: If you are applying as a volunteer, this position is unpaid. If you are a student, you may receive credit. Location: Candidate may work from home. However, preference may be given to someone that is able to travel to D.C.

  3. CASA DC offers two rewarding volunteer opportunities, both of which pair an adult (21+) with a young person (6 to 21) in DC Foster Care who has suffered from abuse or neglect. Although we need all kinds of adult community members to step forward and help young people in foster care, we are especially in need of male mentors and male CASAs at this time. The next training begins September 17. Mentors volunteer with a youth in the D.C. Foster Care system. Mentors utilize their unique experiences to teach their mentees the skills they need to navigate life successfully. Mentors spend a minimum of 4-6 hours per month with their mentees for a year-long commitment. CASAs, Court Appointed Special Advocates speak up for children in the DC Foster Care system. CASAs are appointed by a judge to represent the best interest of a foster care child. CASAs form a relationship with a child, gather information, make recommendations and provide the court with valuable insight into a child's life. CASAs dedicate a minimum of 10-15 hours per month to their case for at least a year. Please contact Michael Parsons, volunteer coordinator, at mparsons@casadc.org or 202-887-0007 ext. 101 to learn more about one or both of these opportunities. Please forward this appeal to any men you know who would consider becoming a mentor or an advocate for a young person in foster care.
