WIT offers students the opportunity to design self-directed internships based on their own program requirements, interests and capabilities.
Internships are accessible to students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds and life experiences; and individualized programs can be creatively designed to be as flexible as needed to meet the particular interests of the field of study as well as personal strengths.
Student interns are expected to accept responsibilities incumbent in a self-directed program. Students are expected to display a high degree of initiative, seek significant challenges, and fulfill the requirements as set forth by their academic institution.
A Student Internship at WIT requires an interview and completion of WIT’s 45-Hour Domestic Violence Advocate Training. The training sessions are held in our Center City office on a periodic basis. Extensive training and ongoing supervision is also provided. This position also requires a Pennsylvania Children Abuse History Clearance and a Criminal Background check.
