Student Internship

The Norfolk Department of Human Services is pleased to offer non-paid opportunities to students enrolled in a human services or other related field of study at an accredited college or university.

Student Internship Objectives
The Norfolk Department of Human Services recognizes the important role we play in serving as a training site for area colleges and universities. Where feasible, we encourage supervisory staff to make use of students to serve as non-paid employees within agency programs and to foster the workforce development efforts of institutions of higher learning.

Internships offer us the opportunity to ensure that future professionals will enter the human services field with a sense of responsibility, dedication and commitment, ready to make a positive difference in the live of the people we serve. The hard work and energy that we put into making your internship experience successful will pay off in dedicated professionals who may, one day, wish to return to our department as employees.
