I'd like to plug into some type of climbing organization, company, group of climbers, school, volunteer, or internship program for part of a year and focus solely on learning solid climbing skills.
Specific suggestions for the best way to make the most of this opportunity to build mountaineering skills with a solid few months to devote solely to the endeavor??

If you are dedicated you can pick up a lot. All Slovene alpinists went through these schools. A more recent reference might be Steve House who dedicates a chapter of his book to the Slovene alpinism school.
Classes (and outings) usually start in autumn, or in the spring time.
Takes more than a few months, though.
