Family Service Association is committed to professional development in the area of Human Services and has an extensive program of student internships. To be considered for an internship, the student must meet the following criteria:
- Be a student enrolled in a college or university
- Be registered for college credits for a field experience or internship; or be enrolled in a class that requires a specific number of hours of community contact
- Have a college instructor or liaison monitoring field experience
- Be aware of specific learning objectives as outlined by their school or class
- Be interested in an internship placement at Family Service Association (all placement location sites are located in southern New Jersey)
Internships generally last an entire semester; some programs require two or more semesters. Internships are generally for a specified number of hours per semester. College credit is dependent on the student having successfully completed the internship.
Family Service Association works with each student to determine a placement which will meet the students learning objectives, in coordination with their liaison. The needs and resources of the agency are also considered in arranging student internships.
FSA interns will receive an orientation. Depending on the program and location at FSA, interns may also have to complete various criminal background checks prior to placement.
Each intern at FSA will have a direct Program Supervisor, providing regular supervision to guide learning, complete learning contracts and evaluations.
Interns are not considered volunteers as there is a distinct agreement between the student, the school and the agency.
