LOUGHEED CENTER FOR APPLIED LEARNING INTRODUCES THREE-YEAR CO-OP INTERNSHIP PROGRAM WITH THE ARC JEFFERSON - ST. LAWRENCE

A new long-term co-op internship program being piloted at SUNY Potsdam is covering the cost of in-state tuition. It’s also giving focused students a suite of skills, college credits and job experiences in human services work that go well beyond what they would take away from an average internship.   The Arc Co-Op Internship Program places students for three years with The Arc Jefferson - St. Lawrence, where they work with people with disabilities for a minimum of eight hours and up to 29 hours a week in residential, day habilitation and vocational services. A partnership of the SUNY Potsdam Lougheed Center for Applied Learning and The Arc, the initiative advances the College’s already significant commitment to applied learning and educational experiences tailored to the individual.
