Student Internship Program

This is a non-paid internship opportunity for students currently enrolled at college or university. The goal of the internship program is to provide structured work experience under the supervision of trained professionals for students interested in a career in the community corrections field. 

The Internship Program requires a commitment of a minimum of ninety (90) hours and students are expected to work a minimum of eight (8) hours per week. In addition, it requires a signed internship contract with the student's school (if academic credit is desired by the student) and Probation, an internship application, completion of a background process, completion and return of specific forms, and attendance at some mandatory county and departmental training.
