"When we understand the privilege of what it means to be an athlete, we are in touch with, and rejoice in, our physical, mental, and emotional strengths and our endless possibilities."

Mental Performance Interns

Every year, Elysian Insight welcomes two highly motivated, up and coming professionals as Mental Performance Interns within our Mentorship program. We invite applications for internships from graduate-level students in human kinetics, counseling, and psychology. Internships are customized both in length and degrees of engagement to meet the student intern’s graduate program requirements and thus vary from 4-12 months. Our interns contribute to Elysian Insight’s work both behind the scenes as well as with direct client experiences. This may include shadowing, co-leading Team Talks and Workshops, and/or taking on clients for supervised One-on-One consultations. Elysian Insight is proud to welcome this year’s talented Mental Performance Interns to the team and grateful for their dedication, commitment, and contributions.
