Co-op Opportunities at HHA

Co-op Program 

The goal of the co-op program is to meet the needs of those students who aspire to get into leadership or management within an agency environment. This co-op program is ideally suited for those who may wish to grow their career to become a Program Manager, Client Intake Coordinator/Manager or Executive Director.  It is important that those joining the program work well in a team in order to make HHA’s presence known in the communities we serve.


We are very passionate about what we do and willing to go out and establish strong relationships with many partners that are as passionate as we are here at HHA! 


It will be delivered virtually, online! 

It is important that students understand that they are learning the management side of how an agency runs! It does not mean they will be working with a client.

HHA was a unique agency to complete my placement, as I was able to learn alot about how agencies run and the different moving parts of the "behind the scenes" in a not for profit.  I gained valuable skills through creating and hosting a death cafe with my peers for Social Workers and Social Service Workers to create awareness about the importance of conversations surrounding dying and death with clients.”
