Description

Huckleberry Youth Programs is seeking someone with a strong commitment to the well-being of youth and social justice to assist us in our mission to educate, inspire, and support under-served youth to develop healthy life choices, to maximize their potential, and to realize their dreams. Since 1967, we have accomplished this by providing San Francisco and Marin youth and their families with a network of services and opportunities by caring peers and adults.  Watch our story!



The Intervention Specialist is a passionate and committed advocate on behalf of youth. The Intervention Specialist will ensure commercially sexually exploited youth and those who are at risk receive services using a trauma informed, youth centered, and strengths-based approach. This position is a member of the Huckleberry Advocacy and Response Team (HA&RT), which seeks to acknowledge the strengths and struggles of youth who have experienced sexual exploitation and to create a safe space where youth are provided options with compassion and integrity in the hope they can heal and lead the lives they desire.


The Intervention Specialist will provide support to four components of the HA&RT program:

  1. A coordinated 24 hour response for hotline referrals involving commercially sexually exploited youth up to age 21 (CSEC) according to San Francisco County CSEC Protocols.
  2. Intensive, in-depth case management services specific to youth who are experiencing commercial sexual exploitation or who are at risk and their families.  
  3. Psychoeducation around trafficking, exploitation, safety, and boundaries that will be provided to both youth and their families.


We’re looking for someone with the following experience and qualities:

  • Strong commitment to the well-being of youth, social justice, and a positive youth development approach.
  • Experience engaging youth aged 11-24 and working with their parents/ caretakers.
  • Ability to authentically engage youth in a meaningful way.
  • Ability to respond thoughtfully and critically to crisis.
  • Ability to balance crisis and an empowerment approach when working with youth.
  • Ability to work and advocate in a collaborative process and negotiate various systems.
  • Maintain a high level of confidentiality at all times.
  • Ability to work independently as well as part of a team.
  • Be comfortable with a fast-paced environment that is frequented by youth, including youth in crisis.
  • Must be able to address crisis as it emerges in an office setting as well as in the field.
