Internship posted by: Emerge, Inc.
Posted on: February 14, 2013
Emerge is currently accepting interns to help with routine office work, including data entry, scanning documents, answering phones, and other data management projects. Interns must be able to work a few hours during the week between 9am and 5pm. Time commitment is flexible, and there are opportunities for committed interns to gain additional experience and training in the field of abuser education (pending administrative approval).
Founded in 1977, Emerge was the first abuser education program in the United States.
Since its creation, Emerge has been a national leader in working to end violence in intimate relationships.
Emerge's mission is to eliminate violence in intimate relationships. In working toward this goal, Emerge seeks to educate individual abusers, prevent young people from learning to accept violence in their relationships, improve institutional responses to domestic violence, and increase public awareness about the causes and solutions to partner violence. With the development of parenting education groups for fathers, Emerge has expanded its mission to include a goal of helping men to become more responsible parents.
Emerge teaches that domestic violence is a learned behavior, not a disease or a sickness. Emerge supports grassroots, institutional and cultural efforts to stop partner violence, sexual assault and child abuse. Emerge recognizes that other oppressive life circumstances such as racism, poverty and homophobia create a climate that contributes to partner violence.
