Undergraduate & Graduate Internships

The Village sponsors internships for students who are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the social work, counseling and administrative fields. Our interns come from a variety of colleges and universities in and around New England.

Acceptance is based upon the availability of supervision in the student’s area of interest, prior experience and learning needs. Referrals are accepted from January 1 to June 1 for internships that start in September and end in May. There may be a limited number of summer block placements, given both programmatic and supervisory availability.
