“Washing one’s hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral.” – Paulo Freire

OYEAs meet the first and third Tuesday of each month from 4:00 to 6:00pm. On the weeks where they aren’t meetings, OYEAs are expected to work internship hours at The Spot where they help out in a number of ways.
OYEAs that fulfill their commitments receive a monthly stipend. To apply contact Mike Tran firstname.lastname@example.org
