Graduate Clinical Internships: MEDA is no longer accepting applications for the 2017-2018 academic year
MEDA offers graduate clinical internships for those working on Master’s in Social Work/Clinical Mental Health Counseling or Doctorates in Clinical/Counseling Psychology. MEDA has accepted clinical interns from Lesley University, Boston University, Boston College, Mass School of Professional Psychology, Simmons College, University of Massachusetts, and others. Graduate Clinical Interns will receive weekly supervision with a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and have opportunities to provide clinical services to individuals, groups, and families. Second year interns or students with previous clinical experience are preferred. If you are interested in a clinical internship at MEDA send resume and cover letter to Rachel Benson Monroe at RBMonroe@medainc.org.
Undergraduate Internships: MEDA accepts 2-3 interns each semester: fall, spring and summer. We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2018!
Undergraduate interns play a significant role at MEDA, working to further the mission of our organization. To do this, interns work with all MEDA staff on a plethora of projects that leverage each individual’s strengths. Interns also assist with minor administrative tasks. At MEDA, we encourage our undergraduate interns to explore topic(s) in the field of particular interest to them. As such, every intern works on an individual project over the course of their time at MEDA.
There are two types of undergraduate internships at MEDA:
- Programming Intern
As a Programming Intern, tasks focus on supporting MEDA’s functional areas of Educate and Empower. Working with the Organizational Development Coordinator, the Programming Intern will gain knowledge and valuable skills relating to the ED field, counseling, and human services in a nonprofit setting. The ideal candidates are those who are pursuing a degree in Social Work, Mental Health Counseling, Psychology, or a related field.
- Development / Communications Intern
As an Intern working with the Director of Philanthropy, the tasks will focus on supporting MEDA’s development activities including communications, marketing, event planning, grant writing and other tasks related to funding initiatives. Ideal candidates are those who are pursuing a degree in nonprofit management, communications, marketing, or a related field.
1. Undergraduate interns do not have direct contact with MEDA’s clients and will not serve as counseling roles.
2. All of our undergraduate internships are unpaid, but provide the opportunity for valuable training.
To be considered for an undergraduate internship, students should be at an undergraduate level. If you meet this requirement, please submit your resume, cover letter, and completed MEDA Internship Application to Julia Spinella with the subject line, “Undergraduate Internship Application.”
