Social Work Intern Positions
In partnership with the College of Social Work at USC, P&A provides internship opportunities for MSW students who are interested in the Community, Social, and Economic Development track. Select interns from USC or other social work programs may be accepted during their first year of the MSW program or for senior placement as BSW undergraduates. Once oriented to the mission and work of P&A, an intern has the opportunity and is expected to seek out projects which will advance his or her learning and are integrated with the curriculum. If you are interested in learning more about a social work internship at P&A, please contact Gloria Prevost (firstname.lastname@example.org) to explore opportunities in the Columbia office.
