Intern Opportunities

Most of our program’s interns come from colleges and universities in the Dayton area:  Wright State University, University of Dayton, Central State University, Sinclair Community College, Miami Jacobs, and Kaplan.  We provide internships for students with a variety of majors in the human services field,  including psychology, social work, sociology, education, criminal justice, rehabilitation, etc.  Internships are also available to students that are studying business, marketing and public relations.
