An internship with ACCA will give you the practical knowledge and skills that complement and complete your academic experience.  ACCA internships include training specific to your placement, as well as broader training on topics related to aging, professional development, and non-profit management. We invite you to join our team of dedicated professionals working to ensure older adults in our area have all they need to Age Well and Live Well.

We have opportunities suitable to students with a variety of academic backgrounds, and we’re proud to have hosted students for internships and field placements from The University of Georgia, The Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership, Piedmont College, Athens Technical College, and many others. We can work with you to offer the experience and hours needed for your individual program requirements.
