Check with your college or university to see if they have an agreement/contract with Cascadia BHC for internship placements (list of colleges and universities with an agreement already in place are listed above). Due to risk and liability, all internships must be formally established with a university/college/training program prior to starting. If you do not see your college or program listed and would like it to be, please contact intern_inquiries@cascadiabhc.org.

The application is a legal electronically-signed document whereas the résumé is not. The application also requires detailed information that a résumé may not have.

If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted directly. If you are not selected and a position has been filled or has been canceled, you will be sent an email notification. You are welcome to check in by emailing intern_inquiries@cascadiabhc.org to follow up. Please give us at least 5 business days for a response.

The internship application process can range from days to weeks depending on the volume of applicants. Cascadia BHC requires a lead time of 45 days prior to when a student would like to start an internship. Urgent requests will not be considered due to the required Criminal Background Check and mandatory trainings prior to the site/program start date.
