FSA Internship Program

The FSA Internship Program is a fantastic opportunity to introduce young adults to the possibilities of working in the senior living field. Sponsored jointly with Friends Foundation for the Aging, this program provides 8-10 week experiences for college students to live and work in a Life Plan Community/CCRC and gain experience and exposure to this industry. We work closely with several universities to place motivated students in these spots. Interns have worked in a number of different departments, including Administration, Human Resources, Social Work and Food Service. 
2020 has marked the 9th summer for the program; we have placed almost 50 interns in FSA member locations nationwide. Read more.


Current information and education, without having to leave your office. FSA coordinates webinars on today’s topics, and connects members to presentations on emerging businesses in the senior care industry. 



Whether you wish to hone your management skills and behaviors, strategize or problem solve, working with a coach can help enhance your leadership abilities both in and out of the office.  An experienced FSA coach will work one-on-one with you in a safe, confidential environment to help you develop sustainable strategies and achieve your goals.
