Internship Program

The Resident Services Department Internship program partners with North Carolina Central University Departments of Criminal Justice, Social Work and Human Science. Undergraduate and Graduate students implement various programs and services within the DHA communities to assist our Residents in becoming self-sufficient. The DHA Resident Services Department established the internship program to give students practical field experiences that complements academic study; to give students practical experience working with professionals and residents in an agency where they might consider working in the future and to provide students with professional networking opportunities to make contacts in the professional sector with community partners where they may potentially seek employment. Paid and unpaid internships are available depending on the program funding.

All internships are in 480 hour increment (flexible time), unless other arrangements are made. The Summer term generally runs from June to August; Fall term from September to December; and Winter/Spring term from January to Mid April. Internships are limited to the Residents Services Department.
