Youth Emergency Services

IHYC Intern

June - August 2019 • Des Moines, IA

What I liked

The people I worked with were great, and I liked interacting with some of the youth. I worked closly with the psychologist to develop lessons and learn about how to continue my intended career of counciling psychology.

What I wish was different

There were a couple of projects that IHYC was trying to get started, but I wasn't able to work on them during the time I was there because the staff did not have enough time to gather the information I would need to begin. It would have been awesome if I could have worked on a lasting project.


If there's ever downtime talk with some of the youth, see what's happening in their lives. It helps you understand what the issues are, and it helps the youth have someone who listens to and hears them.
