Specifying Your Internship
Working for Children
The focus here is that the work you do in your internship will not involve physically being with children, but instead take on a more indirect approach. Internships and careers that allow you to work for children can provide experiences where you are advocating, researching, or participating in identification work regarding issues related to child development and similar fields.
Working with Children
Internships that allow you to work with children give you more hands-on experience. Examples include working at schools and organizations that have you physically intervening.Specific areas of working with children can include...
- infants and toddlers
- school-age children
