Unpaid Job Development Internship

Bookmark This


The South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is a state cabinet agency, and by law, it is also a treatment and rehabilitative agency for the state's juveniles. DJJ is responsible for providing custodial care and rehabilitation for the state’s children who are incarcerated, on probation or parole, or in community placement for a criminal or status offense. Our goal at DJJ is to protect the public and reclaim juveniles through prevention, community programs, education, and rehabilitative services in the least restrictive environment possible. DJJ serves the youth population with young people ranging in age from 12-21 years old. At DJJ we believe change is possible; that our young people are more than the mistakes of their past.

Opportunities to support the Job Readiness Training Center (JRTC) at the Department of Juvenile Justice are presently available! Interns with JRTC will have the opportunity to provide support to the life and job skills training program serving DJJ youth on probation, parole, or in committed status. Unpaid interns work closely with staff to provide support to youth ranging in age from 14 to 18. Selected candidates will support job development efforts and will assist youth with employment applications and resume writing while providing encouragement and support to youth as they enter the workforce in the community.

This dynamic placement affords unpaid interns the opportunity to truly make a difference in a young person's life! Scheduling is flexible during center hours (M-F, 8:30a-5p) to best meet the needs of the intern .


Internship candidates must be attending an accredited college. Students must apply and interview for unpaid positions. Background checks and training are provided at no cost to the intern.
