Make an Impact While in School

The Helping Evidence-Based Advocates with Responsive Training (HEART) Grant is designed to help get trained school counselors where they are needed most. 

In partnership with local LEA school districts, Mercy University provides the opportunity for second year School Counseling students to intern and train in the local school district, while providing tuition remission or a stipend. 

We'll make sure you have not only hands on experience, but special trainings and workshops designed to make sure you are prepared to excel as a School Counselor.
