What you can expect from your Partner Agency

Your partner agency will provide an internship that blends hands-on experience with leadership exposure. Partner agencies are expected to create interaction between interns and professional staff, management, and clients. If at all possible, specific projects are recommended to be completed during the placement. Most importantly, partner agencies are to have clear agreement with interns on: (1) their goals for their placement, (2) what are agency expectations, and (3) how and when they will be evaluated.
