Internships

Crisis Intervention Intern

All crisis intervention interns will be trained on and assist with our crisis hotline. The beauty of this internship is that, with services provided 24/7, you can choose the hours that best suit your schedule. Interns will spend time working both hospital advocacy and in-office to get the full experience of the scope of our work.

For further requirements, please contact Stacey Schwab, Volunteer Director at sschwab@rapecrisis.com.

Counseling Intern

All counseling interns will provide direct counseling services to sexual assault survivors. This internship allows you to gather experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families coping with the psychological impact of sexual violence under the supervision of Licensed Professional Counselors. Your supervisor will contribute to the development of the counseling skills needed to best serve this population. All applicants must be at least master’s level in counseling or related areas and have 50 direct client contact hours at the time of application.

For further requirements, please contact Carmen Vasquez, Clinical Director at mcvasquez@rapecrisis.com.

Education Intern

All education interns will become well acquainted with our prevention work in the community. Hone your public speaking and community engagement skills by observing and presenting to community groups, schools and other organizations. Attend team meetings to read, discuss, and share relevant news and current events. All education interns must commit for a six-month period, and we ask that you have availability during normal business hours.
