Heartspring offers high school and college students the chance to learn more about working with children with special needs through observation, practicum, and non-paid internship opportunities.

We will do our best to accommodate your needs and hours of availability. However, to do so, students should submit their application and paperwork, giving at least 5 working days notice, of the preferred start date. In addition, students will be assigned and scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore, it's best to submit your application and paperwork as early as possible.
