Testimonials from active VASP members:

"It is increasingly difficult to stand apart from other qualified applicants when searching for that coveted internship spot. Living in Northern Virginia, I soon learned that I was not only competing with other Virginia students, but also students from all over the country. The idea of not getting an internship was both real and terrifying! I am sure that my experience on the VASP board helped me to land the position. By becoming a student representative to the VASP board, I was able to bring back meaningful information to my graduate cohort from not only workshops I had attended but also from being exposed to conversations about legislation that would impact my career; experiences that taught me about this profession but also how to become more confident as an aspiring practitioner. I am going into my third year as a school psychologist, and I continue to work in the county that initially hired me as an intern. I would recommend student membership and the rare leadership opportunity of becoming a student representative to all graduate students! "
