Intern and Volunteer Opportunities


Internships in our Behavioral Health program are available for applicable course credit. Resumes and cover letters must be submitted with a list of availability to Shauna Goodwin by e-mail at shaunagoodwin@ccfsn.org. 

If seeking college credit, a contract will be required from your college or university. This process can take 1 week to 3 months, so please plan ahead for time sensitive internships. 

Internships are also available to non-students looking to make a commitment to service or gain experience in the non-profit field. 


Available Internships:

Adoption Research & Education – Social Work, Clinical Social Work and Marriage & Family Therapy


Volunteer Opportunities

Catholic Charities serves more than 50,000 individuals and families each year — and we couldn’t do this without the help of many dedicated volunteers. Volunteers are the life-force of our agency!

Volunteer opportunities are available within our programs. Please explore the ways you can volunteer, and then let us know you’re interested.

All volunteers must complete a volunteer application and adhere to all HIPAA regulations.
