Student Placements

S.H.I.F.T. is committed to providing meaningful learning opportunities to students enrolled in programs related to the social service field.

S.H.I.F.T.  Students

Over the years, we have benefitted from having students work with us in a variety of capacities and have gained much from the exchange of learning that occurs between students and staff.  We are proud to be a part of mentoring the next generation of community and social service professionals.

In order to help you understand the program or service area you may be most interested in, we encourage you to learn about our different programs and services in the Our Programs section of our website.

All placements are unpaid, but may lead to paid positions in the future depending on availability and interest.
