Student Intervention Team (SIT) - Clinical Internship Program

Supporting Emerging Mental Health Professionals

The Student Intervention Team (SIT) recruits, trains and supervises a yearly cohort of approximately 40-50 graduate-level clinical interns. These emerging mental health professionals provide individual and group school-based mental health support to the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). They are Master’s or post-Master’s level graduate students in Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, and Professional Clinical Counseling from prestigious universities nationwide. Interns have the opportunity to pursue research endeavors and can fulfill hours to earn a Pupil Personnel Service Credential. Many interns go on to utilize their training as SFUSD employees upon completion of their internship. For more information, contact SIT at
