POWER Youth - Peer Leader


Davidson County

Family Services/Social Work

Position Description / Responsibilities

POWER Youth, under the direction of Metro Action Commission, is a coordinated initiative launched to provide young people in Davidson County access to employment. In Nashville, we have seen fewer and fewer teenagers and young adults working during the summers and after-school. At the same time, Nashville employers across various industries are concerned about the lack of social and emotional skills among their youngest employees—skills most readily learned through actual work experience.

STARS is currently working with local Nashville agencies to employ 26 college students (Peer Leaders) to coach young people (Experience Workers), ages 14 - 15 years old, over the Summer of 2021 (May 31 – July 22).

Education and Experience:

Competencies required for this position are normally acquired through two to four years of undergraduate studies, coupled with training provided by STARS.
