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!
