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. However, at this point we have suspended these information sessions and are not accepting additional internship applications for the 2020/2021 academic year.

If you would like to consider volunteering, please click here for more information, keeping in mind that COVID-19 has impacted these roles, as well. If you have additional questions or concerns after reviewing this information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at volunteer@interactofwake.org.

Thank you for your interest in InterAct!
