Required Days/times interns must be present in agency:

The first five weeks of the internship requires a 30 hour a week commitment for extensive orientation. Our trainings are comprehensive and build upon each other, so we encourage interns to be available for all of the initial training hours. Group supervision is held on Wednesday afternoons from 3:00pm to 5:00pm and didactic training is on Fridays from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Individual supervision is scheduled between the intern and the supervisor. Since some of our caseload are clients being transferred from the previous intern cohort, we offer some interns an early start date in June instead of the mid-August start date. We provide training and support to these early start interns and find that this availability provides a smooth transition for the clients.

Percentage of hours/week providing face-to-face services: 25

Details and requirements of funding and benefits:

Girls Inc. of Alameda County is not offering a pre-doctoral psychology internship program for 2021-2022. We will have a post-doctoral training program. The full-time pre-doctoral internship stipend is for a one year period, funded at $7,000.00 for a 40 hour work week. Part-time positions are funded at $4,200.00 for a 24 hours week. Only bi-lingual (Spanish-English) candidates will be considered for the half-time position. When possible, we prefer full-time interns. The stipend is based on 48 weeks of internship which includes 3 weeks of time off (sick and vacation). There are several in-house benefits: 1) Reimbursement of mileage between work sites; 2)The agency has a small gym and a yoga studio on the premises that staff and interns can use for free; 3) Being a non-profit organization, interns are eligible for several county/state funded stipends and loan programs; 4) Pathways sponsors a Community Mental Health training Consortium. This consortium provides a few professional development trainings a year in the community with experts in the field. Interns attend at no cost.
