How do I get started?

To get started as an intern, you must first complete the Volunteer Application process.  This consists of completing a volunteer application, meeting the Volunteer Services Coordinator for a one-on-one interview, and successfully passing criminal and other background checks.  All applicants must complete this process prior to completing volunteer training or the start of their internship!  As a result, it is important that you start this process as soon as possible (rather than waiting for the end of your academic period) and note that even if your school has approved STSM as an internship/service learning site, each student must still individually be approved by STSM to complete their time with us. If you have any questions about this process, contact the Volunteer Services Coordinator at
