The Network’s Internship Program for College Students

The Network’s Internship Program offers an unpaid internship for students working towards a Bachelors or graduate degree in Criminal Justice or Human Services. This opportunity provides the student with the ability to combine their academic studies with on-the-job-training and experience. We expect the student to commit to a minimum of 120 hours during this internship.  The internships are scheduled January through May or September through December.  We schedule the intern’s hours around the focus areas (listed below) which will include one night during the week and possibly a weekend day.

  • Criminal and Civil Court: Family Violence Victim Advocacy
  • The Network Support Program
  • Community Youth Education
  • Safe House: Answering the hotline, case management, family advocacy, and support programs for safe house residents and their children
  • Managing a domestic violence agency: what it means to report to a board of directors, grant writing, funding the agency, etc.
  • Attendance in a 24 hour Domestic Violence Education Program

Students interested in an internship opportunity with the Network should submit a
cover letter, their resume and a letter of reference from the student’s advisor

The cover letter must address the following:

  • Why you are interested in interning at the Network?
  • What is your area of study and how does it relate?
  • The beginning and end dates you request for your placement, the number of hours per week you can work and whether you are seeking school credit.
