INTERNSHIPS/ Volunteer opportunities

Social Enrichment Center Internships are designed to give students hands on experience working with children with special needs. The interns are involved in all aspects of the program and are considered members of our staff. Most of the work will be administrative, but during every internship there will be direct work with children (2-21  years old) with special needs.  Internships will include:  assisting with planning, assisting with group sessions, and note taking/reporting for group and individual sessions. Interns are given an orientation and receive on- going training through observation and feedback.
