The DJJDP Internship Program is designed to provide students an opportunity to supplement their classroom education with practical work experience. An internship can also help facilitate a smooth transition into a student's occupational field of choice. Students with limited career-related experience and the desire to work with at risk youth are encouraged to apply.
Policies and Procedures:
Internships are available throughout the year (fall, winter, spring and summer semesters). Students who wish to work as an intern with the Department must complete a DJJDP Internship Application. Interns will be selected based on a formal screening process. Students work an average of 30 hours per week and may participate in tours and other activities designed to broaden their perspective of DJJDP.
To be eligible applicants must:
- attend a college, university, community college or technical institute
- have a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) or greater on a 4.0 scale
- be classified as a sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student
How To Apply:
Internship applications may be obtained by contacting the DJJDP Human Resources Division at the address listed below or you may contact your Career Placement Office at your college/university. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of the internship application. All applications must be signed by school representatives.
