Where are you working this year?
Once a week I intern at Rose Haven, a day shelter for women experiencing homelessness, twice a week I work at Portland YouthBuilders, a school for 17-24 year olds going back for their GED or High School Diploma, and I work at Habitat for Humanity twice a week.
Favorite way to refer to Tivnu participants: Tivnudists

The goofiness that is all around me!
Favorite Tivnu activity so far:
I loved going to the Alicia Jo Rabins poetry reading. I liked being involved in the artistic Portland community.
Tivnu: Building Justice is optimistic that our 2020 - 21 Gap Year program will continue as planned, beginning on September 1. We are still accepting applicants, as space permits. Our staff is working remotely but with great excitement as we prepare for internships, learning, living, and enjoying the Pacific Northwest together. We will be implementing whatever modifications are needed to keep ourselves and the people we work with safe and healthy. Now, more than ever, we need to get to work, building a better world.
