Training a New Generation of Advocates

Students want their internships to be meaningful experiences where they can develop important skills and positively impact the lives of those they serve. As a student pursuing a Master’s in Social Work (MSW), field education is critical, allowing you to take what you are learning in the classroom and applying it directly to patients in need.

With a mission to ignite the interest of emerging social workers in a career working with older adults, Empowered Aging has designed an MSW internship program that provides full training and hands-on experience advocating for older adults and adults with disabilities.

Over the years, our program has distinguished itself as a unique learning opportunity hailed for its professionalism, diversity, and ability to bring a new language and perspective to the elder care industry.

“During my time at Empowered Aging, I was able to learn about the work of an Ombudsman…but most importantly, the internship contributed to my professional and personal growth.”

If you’re looking to build your resume, enhance your advocacy skills, and become a job-ready applicant to help ease the shortage of tomorrow’s elder care workforce, then we want to hear from you! For more information on our program, call us at (925)685-2070 or email us at
