Internships

Internships are available to undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of disciplines. Interested students must be actively enrolled in school and have a required program/degree internship of at least 120 hours to be eligible for interning with InterAct.

Interns have the opportunity to become involved in all areas of the agency depending upon their interests, academic requirements, and availability. Each intern will receive comprehensive training, regular supervision with the FJC Volunteer Coordinator & Clinical Supervisor, and ongoing support.

Please note that, while we provide crisis counseling, we do not provide therapy or other comprehensive clinical services to clients. We are, therefore, not an appropriate fit for many graduate-level counseling programs. Please consult with your program director if you think this might be an issue.

Typically, the first step for anyone interested in interning with InterAct is to attend an information session. These are scheduled at our building (1012 Oberlin Road) at 6PM on the dates below. However, due to COVID-19, we have had to cancel these in-person sessions.

We plan to have an update around early-June regarding any changes and next steps people can take, such as the possible option of a remote information session in late June or early July. Please check back around early-June for these updates!
