The Peer Counselor Internship is sponsored by the SUNY Potsdam Counseling Center. Students accepted into the program train to become peer counselors. They work with students in crisis under close supervision of licensed professional counselors. Starting Spring 2020 if you are interested in becoming a peer counselor you should contact Genevieve Ramsay to obtain an application prior to course registration. An application and interview process will precede approval to register for the initial training course.
This is a 2-semester internship. It is expected that students complete the semester long training and at least one following semester of field work. Failure to complete either semester will result in a grade of zero for the course(s).
12 credits completed at SUNY Potsdam 2.5 or above Cumulative GPA
