Division of Child & Family Services (DCFS) Internship Opportunity (Winter 2023):

  • Accepting APPLICATIONS until October 7, 2022, but sooner would be better than later since there are only a few openings for Winter Semester.
  • You will need to commit to 2 days per week for the internship (Monday through Thursday).
  • To begin the application process, prospective interns will need to reach out to Carrie Hurst for the application and instructions via email:
  • Applications are due no later than October 7, 2022.
  • Interviews will be held virtually the following week. Carrie will be contacting students to schedule their interview.  Students will know if they are offered the internship by the end of the day on October 24, 2022.
  • Once an internship has been offered, paperwork will be sent to that student.  All paperwork will be due back to Carrie on October 31, 2022.  (This will start the process for their background checks; as a reminder, they cannot start without their background check clearing.) 

If you are interested in a career in the Social Services with your BS degree or if you are interested in pursuing a MSW or MFT (or any other counseling and therapy training), then an internship at the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) will provide you with excellent preparation for your goals. Interested students should contact as soon as possible for more details on this experience.

DCFS Description:
Our goal is to have communities where children grow up safe from abuse, neglect, and dependency, where adults are protected from domestic violence, and where parents can be strengthened in their capacity to keep their family safe.

Families and children may receive parent education, budgeting help, crisis intervention, sex abuse treatment, and mental health therapy.

There are a variety of opportunities to work with child welfare workers to investigate allegations of child abuse and neglect. We provide internship opportunities in the following program areas:  intake, child protective service, in-home services, out-of-home (foster care), drug court, domestic violence and adoption.


  • Provide children and their families with services to prevent additional child maltreatment
  • May work in Intake, Child protective workers, as a permanency worker
  • Be involved with drug court and family supportive services
  • Help with transition to adulthood, adoption services, and possibly on a task force


  • Interest in Social Services
  • Dependable
  • team player
  • background in family  dynamics and challenges
  • human development
  • case management skills.

Training in case management is a plus.  BCI is required as a part of the application process.  It is paid for by DCFS.

The following are among the rewarding and challenging service options available to undergraduate interns:

  • Child Protective Services (CPS):  Interns in CPS assist caseworkers who are the first to investigate the allegations received by Intake.  CPS workers and interns visit with the family and children to determine the degree of risk the child may be in and decide whether children can safely remain in the home or if they need to be removed.
  • Permanency Workers:  Interns in Permanency participate in one of two separate programs.
    1. In-home:  In-home workers and interns work with the intact family to provide needed support.  They also facilitate other services, as needed, to help parents create a permanent safe, supportive and loving home environment for their children.
    2. Out-of-home:  If children cannot remain safely in their home, they are placed in temporary shelters until appropriate foster home placements can be arranged. These workers and interns assist the children, their biological parents, and foster parents to make progress toward reunification of the children with their parents, if that permanency goal can be achieved.
  • Drug Court Team:  Many of our families come into care because of drug abuse-related child endangerment.  Workers and interns on the Drug Court Team work with families who are accepted into the Drug Court program which is administered by the courts.
  • Task Force:  In cases of serious physical child abuse or sexual abuse, our Task Force, a specialized team with expertise in investigating these issues, becomes involved.  Interns working with the Task Force assist in the investigation of these particularly sensitive cases, often partnering with the Children’s Justice Center.
  • Transition to Adult Living:  When teens between fourteen and eighteen years of age are removed from their homes, they usually fall under the Transition to Adult Living Program which is designed to assist these youth to develop the independent living skills needed to successfully manage life in the adult world.
  • Adoption Services:  In some cases, the primary goal of reunification cannot be achieved within federally-mandated time frames.  In these circumstances the children may be placed in “foster-to-adopt” homes.  These foster parents have indicated their desire to adopt children.  If the biological parents fail to make the required changes to provide a safe and loving home for their children, then these foster placements may move to adoption.  Interns and caseworkers in adoptions services assist children in foster-to-adopt homes and their foster parents before, during, and following the adoptions process.

If you have questions about this opportunity, please schedule an appointment with Karen Christensen, C&SS Internship Coordinator (945 KMBL) by sending your availability to

Marriott School On-Campus Internship Program

Marriott School On-Campus Internship Program is a great way to build your resume while in school! The OCI credit is not meant to replace your major credit or your capstone credit, but can provide good real-world experience with 3 credits of MSB course registration (this included Ballard Center Social Innovation Projects).

See this link for an overview of the OCI Program:

Email for a spreadsheet of all of the available projects to choose from for winter 2021.

Teams started being put together the first week of December, but students can still sign up until January 13th for any projects still available at the time they apply.

All team meetings, meetings with the company sponsor, and classes are over Zoom.  This is a great class for the COVID-19 world.

There are no fees collected from companies/organizations for these projects.  It is an experiential learning opportunity for the students to get professional-level experience.  Students will find the course gives them real-world experience, builds a stronger résumé, allows them to enhance their education by applying the principles learned in class, and helps them land a job or full-time internship.  The projects we provide are open to all undergraduates across campus and have resulted in high satisfaction from both the companies and students.

There are  a few things important to understand:

  1. All students will benefit from an OCI regardless of the company as there is an opportunity to develop competencies required in all careers.  These include:
    1. Dealing with Ambiguity
    2. Negotiation
    3. Communication
    4. Teamwork and Team Dynamics
    5. Business Research
    6. Project Management
    7. Executive Presentations and Reporting
    8. Resilience/Grit
  2. While the class only meets 6 times during the semester, it is a 3-credit, graded class; so students are required to meet as teams 2-3 times per week and contribute 7 ½ to 9 hours of work each week.
  3. Team assignments and access to online course work is sent out two weeks before classes begin. Students may not add the class after January 14th.
  4. In general, students assigned to Fortune 500 projects are required to have completed at least one previous OCI.  So students that get started now not only gain experience and strengthen their résumé, they also set themselves up for a potential Fortune 500 project in future semesters.

If you have any questions, or if I can help in any way please let me know.
