There are various opportunities at the CACHC for students who need an internship experience.


The process to intern at the CACHC has a few steps. Below the basic steps are listed.

  1. Fill out an application 
  2. Email the application along with a copy of your resume to the Director of External Affairs, Kristin Ownby at
  3. If your skill set and academic needs are a good fit for the CACHC you will be asked to come to our center for an interview and a tour.
  4. Attend the 8 hour required training for all volunteers and interns.
  5. Fill out the additional required paperwork, including a Criminal Background Check and Fingerprinting.
  6. Meet with the Director of External Affairs to confirm your schedule. 
  7. Let the work begin!

Typically the required Intern Class is at the beginning of September and then again at the beginning of February***.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accomodate supervised clinical hour internships.
