 Our application process is open from May to July. Watch this website for a link to the application.  Our training classes are held in the fall. Training is a combination of weekly Zoom classes and in-person events that begin in mid-August and run through mid-November.  There are minimum attendance requirements, open-book quizzes and assigned reading and video watching each week. The cost of the course is $185 which includes a non-refundable background check fee of $12.50.

 After successfully finishing training, Interns are required to give 50 volunteer hours of educational programming in our NNVCE programs and activities.
