Free Street Outreach Training August 16

Date: Sunday, August 16, 2015

Time: 2 pm - 5 pm

Location: Downtown Portland

Cost: Free

Yellow Brick Road is hosting a free training event on Sunday, August 16, open to anyone in the community over age 18. The event will run from 2 to 5 pm with a light lunch provided.

Meet our Outreach Specialist trainers Neal Sand and Bettina Souders who will provide an introduction to the concepts of Trauma Informed Care and Vicarious Trauma. We will discuss:

  • How do we put Trauma Informed Care into practice? 
  • How is past trauma reactivated or triggered? 
  • How can you recognize when someone is being triggered? 
  • What is Vicarious Trauma? 
  • What are the common misconceptions we tell ourselves to convince us we are okay? 
  • How can we implement sustainable self-care practices in our lives? 

We hope you will join us for this great opportunity to learn more about street outreach, volunteer opportunities and other topics related to youth homelessness, poverty, exploitation and social justice.

Seating is limited, please RSVP to dlundberg@janusyouth.org to reserve your spot and get the address.

Visit The Sharing Tree at Washington Square Mall & Look for Janus Youth With the Red Dot on Gift Tag

The Sharing Tree at Washington Square Mall is a great way to make sure each of our youth has a gift to open on Christmas morning. Just pick an ornament from the tree located in the Nordstrom wing, near Williams-Sonoma and purchase the item listed on the tag. Return the unwrapped gifts to the Sharing Tree by December 20th so the gifts can be delivered by Christmas. These gifts are distributed to Janus and eight other charities throughout the Portland metro area. Each year, more than 4,500 gifts are given to those in need through the Washington Square Sharing Tree.

Employee Spotlight—Sina Youssefzadeh

Sina is a passionate advocate for marginalized youth and social justice. Five years ago when he moved to Portland and was involved in grassroots social justice work, he learned about Janus’ work in the community and applied for a Crisis Intake Specialist position at Harry’s Mother, our Runaway Youth Services program. Since then, Sina has continued to help develop a trauma informed approach to the work done within his cohort, build relationships with youth and families and offer referrals to other partnering agencies. We talked to Sina to find out more about what he does in his current position.
