Universities, Graduate Programs, & MSW Students
Students currently enrolled in college or graduate school pursuing degree's are always looking for ways to volunteer. We come across many people who are looking to help their community, especially in times of need, following a tragedy. SJT has many ways for students to get
involved, depending on their interests and passions. We have lots of jobs available for those seeking a bachelor's degree, already have a bachelors, and those who are enrolled in a Master's program. Immediately following the disaster, the day after, SJT heads out to the site and sets up for 45 days. All hours will be coordinated in the first week.

We believe that wellness, fitness, mediation, and nutrition are all important components to recovery. If you already do one of these things as a hobby, consider leading one of our classes once a week for four weeks. You can add the class to your resume and help members of your community.
We also need students to assist SJT in establishing lines of communication between local government, police, emergency medical, and local hospitals. Then, develop social media central hubs, so members of the public can reach us for updates regarding these services. Once we arrive on-scene, individuals (our clients) are concerned about their family members and friends, so having a team of students managing these details, while using social technology to make the information available, is paramount to this role and our mission.

Of all the essential jobs at SJT, the one thing that defines our organization is the ability to offer free counseling to survivors of tragedy. How do we do this? If you are in a program that requires hours of supervision, or you are looking to get licensed, we provide supervisors, so you can bank hours that you need. Plus, professionals are able to add that they volunteered with an organization to provide counseling to survivors in their community. It has been our experience that people are always looking to get involved when disaster strikes, with SJT you can.
For graduate students and current MSW's, who are interested in pursuing this option and volunteering with SJT, we will pay for your lodging and food while you assist us in providing counseling to survivors. Many other organizations charge for your time, but we don't believe that's right, so instead we put you up and feed you.
