JSSA's high school internships offer students an overall awareness of what it means to work in a non-profit setting where a variety of human service needs are met. Since JSSA is an approved Student Service-Learning site, students can get credit towards their student service-learning hours.

This internship allows for flexibility. In order for students to have a meaningful experience we have found that students who dedicate 12-16 hours a week are able to engage with the various programs at JSSA and gain a deeper understanding of being part of a human service non-profit organization.
Students must complete the application and interview process. Selected students have the opportunity to engage in the following tasks:
● Participate in case consultations
● Engage in administrative tasks - analyze data, assist in coordinating
trainings, write reports on those trainings, outreach, creating and
distributing Continued Education certificates, etc.
● Assist in developing presentations (for topics such as psychoeducation on
mental health) for the community
● Attend meetings with various JSSA departments to learn about ongoing
projects and developments
● Assist other departments within JSSA with a variety of tasks
JSSA has been a placement site for students from Georgetown Day School and looks forward to engaging with local area public and private schools. Any high school student is eligible to apply.
