Job Shadowing

Raven's Quest participants had the opportunity to spend time in three different behavioral health organizations over a 6 week period during the Summer Institute, for a total of 75 hours of job shadowing. Some students shadowed one individual in an organization, while others shadowed several employees. The organizations served a variety of clients, from young children to the elderly. Some programs dealt with homeless people, some with families, while others dealt with substance abuse and dual diagnosis issues. Job shadowing organizations for 2003 included the following: Cook Inlet Tribal Council, Southcentral Counseling Center, Southcentral Foundation, Homeward Bound, Alaska Children's Services, Providence Hospital, Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center, and McLaughlin Youth Center.
