With this breadth of services in this expansive geographical region, we cannot predict what supervision may be available, or what program may be able to host a student at any given time. We do our best to partner student and their learning goals with opportunities to learn from highly qualified mentors. An internship placement involves significant staff time for orientation, introduction and familiarization to our agency, practices, policies and programs, a minimal level of involvement is at least 16 hours per week, for at least 3-months’ time.

The vast majority of placements occur in August, September, and May, with a few in December and a few in March. Preparation for a placement involves: receipt and review of application/resume, consideration of potential placement sites and supervisors, arranging for an interview with student/supervisor, conducting the interview and considering the best student learning and programmatic fit, getting administrative approval for extending an offer to host, offering or declining to host an intern, acceptance and/or contracting for a field experience, submitting all necessary paperwork to our business office, arranging for a student to participate in an agency orientation and linking a student and supervisor for outlining a schedule and learning agreement. Please send all resumes and cover letters to Hannah Masog, via email at hmasog@npmh.org.
