Intership
“I have learned so much from this internship. Designing and implementing my own project for FAU students was a great learning experience. In some of my classes, I have read and been instructed on a few steps needed to complete this process, but actually being able to do it hands-on helped me gain much more information.”

PAID Undergraduate Internship Program

ION Undergraduate Internship Program Overview:

The Owls Care Internship Program is specifically designed for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in the Health Promotion field. This PAID internship program gives participants direct experience in a higher education setting, and prepares them for future employment.

Interns participate in a set curriculum, which offers an opportunity to get hands on experience in program planning, implementation and evaluation. A broad range of college health topics are covered, including: Sexual Health and Wellbeing; Healthy Lifestyle; Emotional and Mental Wellness; Healthy Relationships; and Substance Safety.

In addition to the established internship program, students will complete the Certified Peer Educator (CPE) training, a student leadership and empowerment training for peer educators. This certification is an excellent resume builder and gives you the tools and skills to effectively educate your peers on a variety of important health-related topics.
