Youth, get PAID to share your story! Project WHAT! is looking for youth who share our desire to increase awareness of what it’s like to have a parent in prison or jail, and to improve services for youth with incarcerated parents. To apply you must: 
  1. be between the age of 14 and 18 years old;
  2.  live in San Francisco, Alameda, or Contra Costa County;
  3. have ever had a parent in jail or prison;
  4. be willing to share your experience publicly.

As a member of Project WHAT!, you will work with a

writing instructor to write a true story based on your personal experience
of having a parent incarcerated; speak publicly at conferences and
workshops (including sharing the story you wrote); and facilitate trainings
for adults and youth. This is a paid job, and you will receive support and training to achieve
these goals.
