Opportunity:  YWCA Central Alabama’s “Building Communities, Bettering Lives” AmeriCorps program is recruiting 40 members for the 2015-2016 program year. Men and women from Alabama and around the country are invited to apply for the one year of full-time capacity building and direct service through August 2016 benefitting the YWCA and its non-profit partner agencies. Specifically, the YWCA is seeking Healthy Relationships AmeriCorps Members who will facilitate an evidence-based curriculum in area middle and high schools aimed at helping students recognize the difference between healthy relationships and abusive relationships.  The YWCA is actively recruiting for the 2015-2016 term and plan to fill all positions by August 3, 2015.

 

Description:  The YWCA Central Alabama offers the Healthy Relationships Program for area middle schools and high schools free of charge.  The program utilizes the Safe Dates curriculum, an evidence-based curriculum that has been designated as a Model Program by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and was selected for the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), receiving high ratings on all criteria.  Safe Dates helps teens recognize the difference between caring, supportive relationships, and controlling, manipulative, or abusive relationships.  It is during the critical pre-teen and teen years that young people begin to learn the skills needed to create and foster positive relationships.  With Safe Dates, a highly engaging and interactive program, young people are given the tools needed to build these skills. 

 

Ideally, the program is facilitated in its entirety – which is nine 50-minute sessions, however, YWCA Healthy Relationships staff work with schools to accommodate their needs, and tailor the program to fit each school’s availability.  Session topics include: defining caring relationships, defining dating abuse, why people abuse, how to help friends, overcoming gender stereotypes, equal power through communication, how we feel & how we deal, and preventing sexual assault. 

 

Facilitators work with school administrators, counselors and teachers to recruit schools for the program, coordinate scheduling and implement the program.  In addition to pre and post tests, facilitators present a one-month follow-up evaluation for participants, and are responsible for disseminating and collecting all evaluations and tests for statistical and reporting purposes. 

 

The other major role of Healthy Relationships AmeriCorps Members is to serve at numerous outreach events & fairs in the community sharing information about domestic violence & the YWCA’s DV services.  AmeriCorps Members will be trained thoroughly in the dynamics of domestic violence so they feel equipped to lead trainings in the community.  Some outreach events are speaking engagements, while others are “fairs” and only require AmeriCorps Members to distribute brochures and talk one-on-one about the YWCA’s domestic violence services as people come to the table to request information.

COASTAL MARINE EDUCATION & RESEARCH ACADEMY

Summer Research Program

 

Shark & Ray Field Research Opportunity:  Our early enrollment period is ending December 31, 2014 for our summer 2015 program.  This summer you can be a part of our research team as a crew member aboard one of our research boats, gaining hands-on marine field research experience, and handling sharks and stingrays in Florida.  This experience will advance your interest in natural science, provide you valuable experience for your resume, enable you to be eligible to receive credit hours (see below), and provide the enjoyable opportunity to interact with fellow students from all over the country! 

 

Description:  All participating students will be conducting field research on sharks and rays in the Clearwater, FL area in an ongoing project focusing on a species survey, population stability, and population dynamics.  All students will work on our boats in the Gulf of Mexico, setting equipment to catch sharks and rays,retrieving the equipment, handling the animals, collecting pertinent data from the animals, collecting environmental data, tagging the animals, and releasing the animals back into their natural habitat.  Students will also attend daily lectures (1 - 2 hours) on our local ecosystems and the animals that live in those ecosystems.  Students will then receive field instruction as they experience our local and unique ecosystems.  Snorkeling and diving are also available options to further experience our underwater world.

 

CMERA is a unique program that focuses on field research.  In our program, Monday - Friday, 6 - 8 hours are spent in the field on one of our boats each day with an additional 1 - 2 hours in the classroom each day.  This is an incredibly hands-on program where students conduct all portions of the research project and handle the animals.  Students get to experience wild animals in their natural habitat, which is very different from observing captive animals or conducting research in a lab.

 

Our summer courses begin in 1 week periods (Sunday - Saturday) on May 3 and our final week ends on August 29.  Students may attend 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or 4 weeks depending on how many credit hours or how much field experience they would like to receive.  There are financial incentives for attending 3 or 4 weeks.  We also have an early enrollment discount, which ends December 31, 2014, and regular enrollment ends March 31, 2015.

 

Location:  All of our research is conducted in the Gulf of Mexico in Clearwater, Florida and the surrounding areas.

 

Qualifications:  Students must be 18 years of age or older.  Incoming freshman, who have not yet taken college courses, and college graduates are both welcome.  This experience is valuable for students at various levels.  For students interested in the natural sciences, but who have not had much, if any, experience in the natural sciences, this experience may help determine if this truly is the appropriate course of study.  Students who are confident in their natural science discipline, will gain incredibly valuable job training.  Students who are contemplating a graduate degree, will get a taste of what graduate level research is, the difficulties of research, and perhaps ideas for their graduate thesis.

 

Course credit:  For students currently enrolled in college courses, we urge you to speak with your academic advisor or department chair about receiving credit for our courses.  Most schools consider this as independent research, directed study, field research, or elective credits and some schools use our program for a Capstone project.  This experience is very valuable for future internships or jobs that you will apply for even if you are unable to receive course credit.

 

To Apply:  Go to www.cmera.net for more information and to apply for this amazing opportunity!!  Space is limited!   We will provide email addresses, by request, of previous participants, if you would like to speak to a previous student about their experience with us.  Please feel free to contact us via email at info@coastalmera.com or call us at (727)437-8589 if we can assist you in any way.
