Program Overview
The Student Internship Program provides an opportunity for college students to develop experience in the field of corrections, particularly in the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services System.
The program will help develop greater community involvement and a closer relationship with area institutions of higher learning. This bonding will allow us to become involved in other programs that may be beneficial to school, students, probation staff, and local communities.
The program is designed to ensure that the learning experience is beneficial to students and probation staff. While the main focus of the program will be to attract college students in corrections or criminal justice, other disciplines may be invited to participate. This will provide exposure in the field of corrections to students of related disciplines and may give them greater career opportunities.
The ever expanding responsibilities associated with the field of corrections requires knowledge from many disciplines including psychology, social work, education, business management, and counseling. Additionally, expertise in sub-specialties including computer literacy, substance abuse, mental health, investigative techniques, effective writing, and training are essential.
In summary, the program will allow us to learn from each other, develop greater community involvement, and encourage and prepare students to enter a field that requires commitment, creativity, and competency in many disciplines.
