The Oswego Children's Project is an elementary school based, play therapy program that works with pre at-risk children in the Oswego City School District. It is a two semester internship for juniors and seniors. Students start the OCP Program in the fall semester and return for a second semester in the spring. Students earn a total of 6 credits (3 for each semester), once they successfully complete the program.
Applications can be printed here and will be available in March of each year.
Being an Oswego Children's Project Associate is enlightening and exciting! Your participation will have a direct impact on your life and the lives of the children in the program. You will gain valuable hands-on play therapy techniques that can greatly influence your future career choices.
· Throughout the fall semester, each Child Associate will be trained in the use of play techniques and will volunteer with children at an approved location.
· Upon successfully completing the training in the fall, Child Associates will begin working one-on-one with at-risk children at the Oswego elementary schools in the spring.
· Child Associates will be responsible for completing academic assignments, including case studies that will coincide with hands-on experience.
· Each Child Associate will keep a journal of their personal experience, thoughts, and reflections throughout their training and role as a Child Associate.
· A minimum overall GPA of 2.5
· Junior or Senior standing at the time of the experience.
