Typically, intern candidates are enrolled in a degree program at a college or university and the internship is designed to fulfill coursework requirements. Because of the professionalism and diversity of our staff and services, we are able to meet the needs of students with a wide range of interests.

Some recent examples of areas of study include: Animal Science, Child Development, Non-profit and Social Work, Occupational & Physical Therapy Field Work, Recreational Therapy Field Work. Internship opportunities are also available in these and similar areas for those looking for on-the-job training not necessarily associated with a degree program.
