Education in a Non-Traditional Setting

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. With this mission in mind, DJJ has a fully accredited school system that operates behind the fence in Columbia to provide the best education possible to children in need.

The fully accredited and full-functioning school for young people at DJJ serves youth ages 12-18. Juveniles are required to attend. Many of our students struggle in their studies and additional support is needed to help the young people at DJJ achieve their educational goals. Interns/Student Teachers are needed to encourage students, uplift them, give them hope and provide classroom and/or one-on-one educational support services.


Interns may provide instruction in the classroom or may provide direction one-on-one with youth behind the fence at the Department of Juvenile Justice.


Candidates must be attending an accredited university. All interns must apply and interview for unpaid positions. Background checks and orientation are provided at no cost to the intern.
