Students have the option to complete an internship or practicum with STOP Violence. Internships are available every academic semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer).
Internships generally involve experience with crisis intervention and advocacy, and/or community education about violence prevention. Intern projects and responsibilities are determined based on student interests and the current needs of the STOP Violence Program. Students interested in interning with STOP Violence need to speak with the STOP Violence Coordinator and their academic advisor the semester prior to the desired start date of the internship.
Students interested in working with survivors of violence as part of their internship or practicum are required to complete the 40-hour Advocate Training with the Albany County SAFE Project. As this training is usually offered mid-semester, interns are strongly encouraged to complete the training before the beginning of their internship, and preference will be given to interns who have already completed the training. More information is available from the Albany County SAFE Project. All student interns, regardless of area of interest or chosen project, are encouraged to complete the advocate training.
