About the Internship Program

The Sexual Health Internship Program at Strut provides an opportunity for interns to work alongside sexual health clinicians and volunteers, insurance and benefits navigators, and community programs staff–all who are experts in HIV prevention, treatment, and advocacy.

Our internship program will begin in August 2018 and will require a semester long commitment. Interns are scheduled for 3 to 4 shifts per week, for a total of 12 to 16 hours per week.

Interns recieve:

  • Training as an HIV test counselor and certification from the Department of Public Health
  • Hands-on experience delivering the full spectrum of client-centered care—from initial client intake to harm reduction counseling and health navigation
  • An opportunity to learn about evidence-based sexual health programs and services for marginalized communities
  • The opportunity to participate in programs and events that address health disparities in the queer African American, Latino, and trans communities
  • Mentorship and flexible learning opportunities based on individual interests
  • Resume-building experience and letters of recommendation (with discretion from intern supervisors)

Interns learn the following skills:

  • Harm reduction
  • HIV test counseling
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Medical benefits navigation
  • Community organizing to address health disparities
  • Chronic disease management
  • Community-centered clinical administration
  • Nonprofit management/programming
