Ms. Amber Franco, MSW Intern 2020-2021

My name is Amber Franco and I am currently in the MSW program at USC. I am the Social Work Intern this year at Griffith and will be working with students during distance learning to help support students' mental health by providing individual services, groups, and presentations. I’m excited to be at Griffith and I’m looking forward to a great school year. Go Bulldogs!

My name is Maritza Martinez and I am an MSW student from California State University, Dominguez Hills. I will be interning at Griffith as a Social Work Intern this school year. In collaboration with my colleagues, I will be helping to promote positive mental health among students at Griffith. I am delighted to be at Griffith and can not wait to learn and grow with you all. Let's have a wonderful school year, Go Bulldogs!
