Internship Opportunities

An internship at Sweetser is a wonderful way to explore career options and to gain professional experience while still in school. We pride ourselves in strategically matching interns so that they receive the highest quality learning opportunity while also being able to apply skills they already possess.  

Interns can be placed in a variety of programs or departments at Sweetser, including:

  • Social services fields (MSW, LCPC)
  • Communications
  • Development
  • Human Resources
  • IT
  • Training

Placement can occur at any time of the year. However, the application process can be lengthy, so you will want to plan well in advance of your anticipated start date.

Internship Application

Once we receive the appropriate paperwork, we will begin to match your criteria with the programs that might be a good fit.

If a supervisor believes that an intern will be a good fit, they will invite you for an interview. 

If you are offered an internship, you will be required to attend a day-long orientation on a Monday. Clinical and Direct Care interns will be required to attend additional trainings. 

If at any time during this process, you take an internship with another organization, or have general questions, please contact Karen Dow at 207-294-4609, or email at

Thank you for your interest in Sweetser and best of luck with your education and career goals!
