AHS Youth Program


How do I get involved at AHS Youth Program?

We are happy to announce that we have THREE different ways you can help out at Youth Program. Read below to find out more! Also, please check asianhealthservices.org for other career & employment opportunities.



We are always looking for self-motivated interns to lead sex education workshops in Oakland middle schools! Workshop presentations are based on the Office of Adolescent Health/Teen Pregnancy Prevention approved curriculum “Making Proud Choices!” specifically meant for 6th grade students. This is a perfect opportunity for those seeking to gain teaching experience and who are committed to reproductive health advocacy and youth empowerment.


Interns also have the option to gain invaluable experience during our clinical hours working alongside healthcare providers, counseling patients on STD/HIV testing, birth control options, and more! We hope to create a comfortable atmosphere that allows interns to showcase their skills & encourages self-initiated projects.


Interns are expected to commit 5-10 hours per week for 6 months – 1 year. This is an unpaid internship.

The AHS Youth Program seeks motivated and creative middle/high school teens ages 14-18 to partake in our Peer Leadership Program. This is a school year long commitment and Peer Leaders are expected to meet once a week.


As a Peer Leader, you will learn how to speak out about reproductive health rights and issues impacting youth. Through discussions, trainings and meetings, Peer Leaders will work with Youth Program staff in developing creative educational projects and activities regarding teen pregnancy, HIV/STIs, and birth control for their peers. Other Peer Leader opportunities include peer-to-peer & festival outreach. Gain invaluable experience in leadership and do something great for your community!




IWAY is where youth can freely create art in community to destress and express their ideas. We are looking for youth age 12-18 living in Alameda county to join the program.




We are currently looking for 6-8 adults to represent the community that are willing to work in partnership with youth and want to bring their talents to improve Oakland and Chinatown.The meetings will start in January and will consist of trainings and planning a community based and participatory research project.


AHS Youth Program has been invited to develop a youth and adult research and advisory board that will teach youth how to create, develop, and conduct health research that is community based and youth-led.This is your chance to be a mentor to local youth in a fun and meaningful environment that will result in a lot of benefit to the community.
