Masters Degree Internships
Project Point of Light normally accepts two students at the Shippenville and Clearfield office locations each year into our Internship program. Social Work interns will be supervised by a Licensed Social Worker who has the clinical hours, training and experience necessary to provide the required semester hours for your graduate coursework. Licensed Professional Counselors are supervised by an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor.
Master’s Degree interns will have the opportunity to observe group therapy, evaluations and be a part of the mental health clinical experience.
Project Point of Light interns often result in employment with the agency upon graduating and obtaining licensure.
Applicants for the internship program must be from an accredited Masters Degree program, must possess child abuse and federal clearances.

Undergraduate students who are interested in specialized mental health often volunteer or carry out formal internships with our agency. We normally accept one to two undergraduate interns per semester at the Shippenville and Clearfield office locations. Undergraduate interns typically work with our clerical staff and are supervised by the Office Manager. Interns are given the opportunity to “shadow” case management staff and clinicians.
All interns must possess child abuse and federal clearances. The number of hours that interns should be available is dependent upon the hours that are required for their coursework.
