*Working Between and After Your Semester

The relationship between Guardian House and student interns is a symbiotic one; each helping the other.  You must commit to continue your weekend schedule between your first and second semester, as well as after your last semester until the new interns are trained to supervise visits independently. Some programs allow students to count this time toward their clinical hours; any questions regarding this should be directed to your university.
