We are excited to announce a great leadership opportunity for the students who are now alumni and enjoyed their SOCC experience. The SOCC Planning Committee is seeking 3 individuals to serve as SOCC Conference Interns in the following roles:
Requirements for 2017 SOCC Interns
Applicants must be alumni of a Washington State Community or Technical College, and must have attended at least one Students of Color Conference (SOCC) as a student.
Applicants may not be current community or technical college students.
Applicants must possess a high level of cultural competency, awareness of their own cultural/racial identity and how their identity interacts with others, and fluency with concepts of race, racism, social justice and intersectionality.
Priority will be given to students who have NOT served as a SOCC intern.
Identity Development: introduce students to concepts and structures that will strengthen their ethnic and/or racial identity.
Awareness of Others: these workshops are designed to increase students’ awareness, knowledge, and understanding related to race, ethnicity, and other differences of groups other than their own.
Skill Development: students build and learn skills that they can use to achieve their full potential.
Social Justice/Social Activism: these workshops will introduce and/or advance students’ understanding of the importance of becoming social agents of change.
Personal Development: students learn the importance of health and wellness issues related to the mind, body, and soul.
The goal of the conference is to support Washington State students to become more active proponents of their own education and life choices, and expand the opportunities and possibilities for students to become agents of change.
