Internships at FamilyWise

An internship at FamilyWise can help propel you into a meaningful career in social work, psychology, human services, and more as you gain valuable hands-on experience while helping our families achieve their goals.

Each year, more than 30 student interns volunteer in our programs while pursuing their degrees or licensure credit. As a FamilyWise intern, you will work directly with diverse families experiencing complex challenges while our experienced staff offers you extensive supervision, training, and feedback. 

Our internship program is well-established and highly flexible, and we will work with you to tailor your internship to your availability, interests, skills, and education level. We offer year-round internships that meet most colleges and universities’ requirements for direct family contact. 

Interns may work in these FamilyWise programs: Supervised Parenting and Safe Exchanges, In-home Parenting (Foundational), Young Parenting Services (Foundational), and Early Childhood Education. We also welcome interns in other areas, such as administrative activities such as marketing or fundraising, as well as program development and evaluation. Get in touch to see what might be the right fit!
