Social Service Internships

Aviva Social Services Intern and Mentor Program

Interning with the Department of Child Safety

Social Service Interns are student volunteers who make a huge difference in the busy work schedules of DCS workers. Under the supervision of a case worker, interns will take part in home visits, assessing client needs, writing reports, attending team meetings and participating in other activities as needed. This is a unique and excellent way to test your affinity for social work, and is a great resume enhancer!

  • Interns will need to be able to commit to minimum 130 hours a semester
  • Interns will be drug tested
  • Interns need to be 20 years of age, or older, at time of application

  • Mentors will be drug tested
  • Mentors will need to have reliable transportation and a clean driving record
