Looking for a paid internship?
The ExxonMobil CSJP Program sponsors paid internships at 60 area non-profit agencies.
To be eligible for the ExxonMobil CSJP Program you must be a full time, currently enrolled, undergraduate student that will be returning to school in the fall of 2013 as a full time sophomore, junior or senior.
Please contact the agencies from the list that you are interested in directly (neither Dr. Henney nor Dr. Branham can get you into this program…only the agencies can), and they will let you know their application process.
Do you want a meaningful, interesting internship experience with people who really need your help? Please consider one of the internships listed under the Geriatrics/Older Adults category on the Internship Marketplace. Older adults constitute a chronically under served population in Houston and around the country. Make your internship count in the life of an older person!!
Your fellow students who worked with older adults state:

"I was there to help support people when they did not have family close by."
"I visited the nursing home today. I was determined to put my social skills that I learned from psychology and my clerical skills to use. I met with my patient today. I went over her likes and dislikes with her. We both enjoyed the company. The nurse had told me previously that this patient did not want to eat. Well, she ate with me and expressed an interest in going out to play bingo and get her nails painted. I felt like I have broken through to the patient and now feel a sense of worth, like I am wanted here or that I belong here. It was then that I decided to do more nursing home visits…"
