Why are Internships Important?
Internships provide practical experience in a professional environment. Practical experiences apply the content from your coursework to relevant issues in the workplace. Many employers seek to hire Masters level graduates who already have on-the-job training.

El Hogar is not for profit community-based organization meeting the federal designation as a 501(c) (3) not for profit organization. Our Internship Program provides opportunities for Graduate Students to participate in a rewarding and diverse field experience to satisfy a portion of their requirements for school or professional internship.

Thank you for expressing interest in El Hogar’s Internship Program.
We will begin accepting resumes for Masters level students for the 2020/2021 internship year in May 2020. We accept graduate level interns from LPCC, MFT and ASW programs. It is important for the school you attend to have a contract with our agency before we can accept an intern from that school. You may want to check with your school to see if a contract does exist between your school and El Hogar.

We prefer that our interns work at least two eight hour days per week. If you are looking for full time employment and not an internship, please visit our employment page. Please note, if you have already graduated and have a Master’s degree in psychology, social work or a related field and are registered with the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS), you no longer qualify for an Internship Program at El Hogar, but instead may apply for full time employment.
