Make a Difference in Your Community

Does Caritas have internships?

Yes, we offer a select amount of summer, fall, and spring social work internships each year. Internships are a great opportunity for college students, pursuing their bachelor’s degree in social work, to gain real-world experience in their area of study and see first-hand, the difference they can make in people’s lives. 

All internships through Caritas are on a voluntary basis but we are happy to work with your college or university to help you obtain college credit for your time interning with us. Internships fill quickly so please submit applications early!

  • Internships are available on a limited basis in our four regional offices: Belleville, East Alton, Carterville, and Mt. Vernon.
  • Internships are reserved for individuals seeking a four-year degree in the social services field or a graduate degree in the counseling field.
  • All interested applicants must complete a background check and fill out the online application.
