MSW Student Internship

MSW Student Internship

Field education is an integral part of the Social Work field, providing students the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom and work with real-life clients under the supervision of a seasoned social worker. We act as a learning laboratory, giving students valuable exposure to the full range of functions, responsibilities, challenges and opportunities today‚Äôs social workers experience. 

Interning with our agency allows students to observe and participate in providing direct services to clients using different methods and modalities of intervention and assessing, developing and evaluating services that address the needs of a community. 

During internship students provide direct service to individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. Students learn core practice skills, including psychosocial assessment, clinical interviewing and evaluation, with an emphasis on helping clients of different ages, gender/family constellations, sexual orientation, economic, and racial and cultural backgrounds. 

This program is designed for Students 18 and older currently pursuing a Bachelors/ Masters Degree in Social Work at a Credited University. All students must commit to a 9 month minimum field placement requirement of 16-20 hours per week, and participate in weekly group supervision trainings and individual supervision by our LSCW Field Instructors.

Internship Responsibilities Include:

  • Facilitate & co-facilitate groups
  • Participate in weekly group training
  • Participate in case conferences
  • Macro Community Project
  • Work directly with individuals/families
  • Integrate classroom content/theory
  • Exposure to diverse client population
