Internships at Tanager

Tanager values the influential experience a student can acquire during an internship. The skills learned can be applied to future positions and hopefully throughout a career. These real-world experiences enable a student to apply what they have learned into action. Tanager is proud to offer internships to students looking to pursue a professional placement in Social Work, Mental Health Counseling, and Family Therapy.

Master’s Level Opportunities: We are excited to work with graduate level students pursuing a MSW, MHC, or MFT. Tanager is now accepting applications for Fall 2023-Spring 2024 internship and practicum opportunities. Click here to submit your application and please contact with questions.
