Put your talents to work for children.

Our employees and interns are a vital part of our success.

Currently there are no open positions with the Children’s Advocacy Center.

Due to the nature of our work, confidentiality standards, and internal policies, our internships and volunteer opportunities are for students who are 18 years and older.

Internships

The Children’s Advocacy Center holds a commitment to the education of collegiate students in the field of child maltreatment.  We accomplish this through the experiential learning and on-on-one supervision with an emphasis on evidenced-based interventions in providing comprehensive assessment and treatment services to children who have experienced maltreatment and their non-offending caregivers.  Through this process students will gain the foundation for acquiring the competencies necessary to become self-reliant and productive professionals with knowledge and skills in the field of child maltreatment.
