Many of us have felt our internships have failed to effectively utilize interns or foster a supportive learning environment for students. We recognize it is hard to predict how agencies will interact with students, or how this changes on a yearly basis. However, we believe that this could be mitigated by requiring agencies to submit a Letter of Intent each year, stating what the responsibilities of an intern will include, why the agency wants an intern, and how they will effectively foster the growth and professional development of their intern. This may include a cover letter, as well as an outline of the intern position. This would be an effective way to hold agencies accountable, track agency changes year to year, and require the agency to prove that they have the capacity to take on this responsibility.
