First thing to do is to fill out an internship application. Submit the completed application along with a copy of your current resume, a list of references (including at least one work reference; do not include relatives), and at least two goals or objectives for the internship. You may submit these items electronically to KimS@annamaries.org or mail them to PO Box 367, St. Cloud, MN 56302. After review, an interview is scheduled where you may need to complete various forms (background check, confidentiality, motor vehicle insurance information, etc).
