Internships and Practicums

SARC offers internship and practicum opportunities year-round in the Education and Outreach Department, Counseling Department and Non-Profit Management which spans across three different departments. If you are interested in an opportunity for your own professional development or for a school class, please take the time to read below about the two different options. Consider which one might be a good fit for you and/or your class requirements and contact us as early as possible to initiate the process!

As an intern, you will work with a supervising staff member to establish your hours, your project to be completed at the end of the internship or practicum (either chosen by you or your class/practicum's requirements), duties and responsibilities as well as your training requirements. SARC will provide all training necessary.
