Internships and Practicums

A- A A+

Our Placements

The YWCA Greater Austin works cooperatively with colleges and universities to provide students impactful and inspiring realworld experience.

Most of our masters-level  interns are social work and counseling students. Students typically receive 15 hours of training, carry a case-load, complete intake assessments, attend individual and group supervision, conduct research and co-facilitate groups.

Our bachelor-level internships are more generalist and offers students the opportunity to develop case-management, advocacy, outreach, group facilitation, research, and administrative and planning skills.

We regularly collaborate with The University of Texas at Austin, St. Edward’s University, Baylor University, Texas State University, and The University of Texas at San Antonio. We anticipate fostering relationships with other universities and colleges as students express an interest.

Clinical Volunteers

The YWCA Counseling and Referral center accepts people with LPC-Is and LMSWs working towards completing their clinical hours for advanced licensure. Clinical volunteers formulate a plan with their supervisor, carry an on-going caseload, co-facilitate groups, and attend individual and group supervision.


Within the YWCA Counseling and Referral center program, students, clinical volunteers, and community volunteers work under the supervision of the Clinical Director, the Clinical Supervisor, or a Lead Counselor. They receive individual and group supervision on a weekly basis.
