Since Carroll County Youth Service Bureau first opened its doors in 1972, more than two hundred fifty students have participated in its Graduate and Undergraduate Intern Training Program. This experience offers prospective interns intensive clinical training, client caseloads, professional supervision, and the opportunity to support the community. Interns are an integral part of CCYSB's culture and allows the agency to treat individuals who desperately need care, while also influencing a new generation of advocates in social work and professional counseling.
More than 90% of CCYSB's clinical staff once served as agency interns, including several current members of our leadership team.
This program provides intensive training, supervision, and on-the-job experience to master’s-level clinical interns and undergraduate students. Qualified candidates should embody a strong work ethic, leadership qualities, and a desire to learn. They should also demonstrate professionalism, ability to be team players and have the ability to communicate effectively both in writing and verbally. Students are referred by university faculty and will undergo a formal interview process. If selected, interns will be asked to complete fingerprinting and a background check.
Interns come from the University of Maryland School of Social Work, Towson University, McDaniel College, Hood College, University of Pennsylvania, Morgan State University, Johns Hopkins University, and several on-line university programs.
