Hands On Experiences Set the Stage for Success

JCFS has a proud history of developing professionals from several social disciplines.  In 2014, 28 students across 11 disciplines, from 16 colleges and universities completed an internship or practicum at JCFS.  100% of those student interns rated their training experience at JCFS as very positive.


Our internship programs enable qualified students the opportunity to work and learn in an environment where a dynamic mix of intensive training and one on one interactions with thought leaders both challenge and engage new professionals.
