The GoodHealth Program serves approximately 500 youth and  young adults with moderate to severe special needs in South Bay Area. Join our team to be a part of your community by working directly in the classrooms and participating in community events. Gain leadership skills through experience in being an independent facilitator, leading a project, collaborating with team members and connecting with new networks.

Our team is seeking individuals who are self-motivated, challenge driven, team-oriented, dedicated and passionate about health, education and community.  This internship is geared for individuals who are seeking hands on experience in developing professional skills, creating better work habits, and growing through learning and feedback.

Interns educate high school students and young adults with special needs about various health topics including nutrition, tobacco education, personal hygiene, relationship building, personal safety, manners and personal health management (topics are subject to change based on students).

This internship is what you make out of it. There is a great opportunity for growth but you have to be willing and open. The impact you make may feel small sometimes with this population but it is significant. I became a more refined individual with a purpose thanks to GoodHealth. – Rubi Deniz

My time at GoodHealth has been a huge learning experience for me. I gained knowledge and skills that will help with everything else I do in life and I made great relationships along the way. – Yadira Sifuentes

It was a fun and rewarding experience with GoodHealth. I learned a lot along the way and I feel like I grew so much as a person. This internship definitely opened up my eyes to things I’ve never experienced before. it was very fulfilling and exciting to get to know all of my students, working with teachers, aides, interns and program coordinator. The Career Fair and Health Fair were very fun events; I would do it all again if I could. Overall, this has been an amazing experience for me. – Tina Saelee

I loved GoodHealth and it was such a rewarding, eye opening experience for me. I truly believe it helped me learn so many skills that I will use in my future profession. I really did not know what I was going to get out of this experience but I am now so pleased to have worked with such a great population. – Ilenia Balistreri

It was a great experience that was eye-opening and taught me many ways to present and keep the class interested and participating in the lesson. It taught me a lot more patience and that one must put in the time and effort if they want to succeed in this internship. – Sarah Chao
