Student Internship Program
Prince William County Community Services provides internships to Master's level only students who are completing specific requirements under supervision for academic credit. Internship opportunities change frequently, and all internships are unpaid. We interview interns at any time during the calendar year, and it is recommended that students apply at least 4-6 months prior to their start of placement.
Applicants are expected to participate in at least one interview, and provide reference information. Students who are accepted into the program will go through a background check, will be required to complete a screening for tuberculosis, and participate in training and orientation activities.
