Intern with SR/SF

SR/SF is NOT accepting any Intern Applications for FALL 2020.  Please check website periodically for further updates.

In order to reach our program objectives, we partner with Texas State University, The University of Texas, and St. Edward’s University to recruit and place interns from a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to Family and Child Studies, Human Development and Family Sciences, and Social Work.

We offer two types of internship opportunities

Intervention Internships

Interns help administer group sessions and case management under the supervision of a trained program facilitator. This internship requires the majority of the work to be completed onsite; therefore intervention interns will be assigned to a school and program facilitator prior to the beginning of the school year. Students will then assist the Strengthening Relationships/Strengthening Families’ Program Facilitator in conducting concurrent 14-week sessions and case management at one of the PEP programs in New Braunfels, San Marcos, Kyle/Buda, or Austin. These sessions will cover topics such as creating realistic expectations about relationships, developing conflict resolution strategies, healthy co-parenting, developing a budget, and making healthy choices for their future. The interns/practicum students will also assist with additional activities as outlined in their internship contract.

We offer Intervention Internships at eight sites across Central Texas: four that take place primarily on Tuesdays & Thursdays and four on Wednesdays & Fridays. Interns will be assigned to one site and expected to be available between regular high school hours on the two days per week that they are assigned to their internship.

Training: All interns are required to attend a four day training regarding issues such as: domestic violence, case management, curriculum facilitation, and SR/SF procedures. In order to maximize of our interns we hold our training the week before the university semester officially begins so that everyone is trained and ready to work with students on their first official class day. 

The upcoming mandatory training dates are: January 14-17, 2020 from 8:30-4:30 and is held in the FCS Building at Texas State University.

Research Internships

Interns help with participant recruitment, focus groups, quantitative data collection, management, and analysis. This internship requires the majority of the work to be completed at Texas State University, in the SR/SF research lab under the supervision of graduate research assistants and Dr. Perez-Brena. Some travel to the target high school will be required in the beginning and end of the semester.

Training: All interns will receive at least 8 hours of training regarding issues such as: domestic violence, research methods with underserved populations, working with parents and adolescents, and SR/SF procedures.
