Nine years ago, Hope4Utah began as a local nonprofit focused on improving suicide prevention in local schools. As a result of their training and volunteer efforts they coordinate, there have been 0 suicides in the Provo district in those past 9 years. They now coordinate efforts in 170 schools and between 5,000 volunteers.

Now, Hope4Utah is responding to national and international pressure to expand their program. Meeting with national and state government leaders, Hope4Utah is developing a program that can help millions of children. And they need your help.

Under the direction of a 30-year expert in suicide prevention, interns will be helping to develop the training materials that will drive this expansion. This internship opportunity fits well with students seeking an internship that makes a major real-world impact. Prospective interns should demonstrate an ability to edit for precision and audience.

To apply, email Dr. Greg Hudnall (greg4hope@gmail.com), Hope4Utah’s founder, with a resume. You are also welcome to ask for guidance at byuenglishinternships@gmail.com.
