WHAT IS STUDENT EXPERIENCE?
Since 1987, Student Experience has specialized in providing Personal Care services to clients with physical and behavioral needs in the Twin Cities and Duluth areas. We hire college students pursuing health, education and helping careers to provide a successful environment for students to learn and clients to receive exceptional care.
Students are challenged by working with our clients but are rewarded with hands on experience that goes beyond a paycheck.
We pride ourselves on carefully considering your personality and desired career path to create a program unique to your needs.
We provide direct care experience students use to validate career aspirations and unlock their future success.

A day in the life...
The role of PCA is to support and encourage activities of daily living for our clients whom for behavioral or physical reasons, require a PCA. Student Experience works with clients of all ages. Schedules are flexible and some of the activities include helping clients with getting dressed, eating, bathing, range of motion, accompanying to appointments (ie: Occupational / Physical Therapy) and community integration. Whatever the unique role of our students, supportive staff is always right there to guide and prepare you!
Students are the core of our business! Because we recognize the need for hands-on field experience & professional development, our students have been accepted to grad programs of their choice or use their field experience to get their first post college job! See our Success Stories for more!
