Students & Interns

Internship is an important part of SMRC’s effort to encourage students in careers which serve people with disabilities.


Opportunities are available for students to train with professionals and to do research in a wide variety of fields, including: social work, speech pathology, psychology and dietetics.


SMRC partners with area high schools, vocational schools, community colleges and universities in offering observation sessions and tours of its Long Beach programs.


Individuals and groups interested in volunteering should contact Ms. Denise Christmas-Wallace at 228-867-1448
