School Counseling Internships in Wake County Public Schools

Please note that students are not permitted to contact schools, central office, or Human Resources to request their own school counseling internship placements. Wake County accepts placement requests only from the designated university placement contact and for NCCU that is Dr. Taheera Blount. All requests must be submitted in accordance with established procedures and due dates.
