The purpose of the internship program is to provide the student with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience that is closely related to the student's educational knowledge base. The TRP believes in a team philosophy and although the intern will be supervised by a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist with more than 2 years of experience, the student will have the opportunity to work with multiple CTRS's to understand various leadership styles and programs. In exchange, the City will receive valuable work contributions from creative, highly motivated therapeutic recreation pre-professionals. Therapeutic Recreation Program website:
