LifeSTEP Internship Program

Applications can be downloaded and then submitted to Julie Feldman at any time (contact info at bottom of page), but will only be reviewed leading up the Spring and Fall semesters. Please watch for email updates from the Psychology email listserv regarding these application periods. Our notifications should be sent out in November (for Spring semesters) and April (for Fall semesters).


The psychology clinic has established a community service agency that provides undergraduate life skills trainers (and mentors) to school-aged youth with emotional and/or behavioral problems. A vast majority of these youth are from low income underrepresented groups in Tucson and struggle with a variety of emotional and behavior problems.

As a LifeSTEP (Life Skills Training and Enhancement Program) intern, you would be meeting with your assigned youth about once a week for about 4 hours each time. Activities might include going to the movies, getting an ice cream, going bowling or spending time at a park, etc. (you would be reimbursed for your expenses including gas). 

You would receive 2 units of internship credit (Psychology 493A) one 1 additional unit of workshop credit (Psychology 497A), and you would have the opportunity to receive training in this area. Interns must be at least 18 years old.
