DVRC is proud to offer valuable clinical counseling internship experiences to graduate students completing master’s level programs in counseling, art therapy, psychology, and social work. DVRC offers one-of-a-kind services (including the only confidential shelter) at no cost for survivors of domestic violence in Washington County. Our services are in great demand and our counseling interns are crucial to helping us provide these services and meet those needs.
As a counseling intern, you will be responsible for providing an extensive range of clinical counseling services, including:
- co-facilitating 24-week psychoeducational groups for adult and adolescent survivors of DV
- providing individual counseling to clients (adults and children) as appropriate
- conducting client intakes and screening
- providing DV awareness and educational presentations and trainings to community organizations, including local high schools
- providing outside resource and service referrals to clients as needed
DVRC opens its search for counseling interns each February, with internships to begin the following academic year (September). All interns are required to complete a 40-hour domestic violence training prior to the start of their internship.

Please note: Counseling Internships for the 2017-2018 academic year have been filled.
Kid’s Club Volunteer:
As a volunteer you would come to our shelter once a week for an hour and a half and provide childcare in a group setting with a staff member and other volunteers. Our Kid’s Club volunteers are crucial to our program at Monika’s House, as it allows parents to participate in support and education groups, or practice a bit of self-care. This program also creates space for the children to just be kids and play at the shelter and take their mind off everything else going on in their lives, even if for a short time. Kid’s club takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:30-8:00pm. As a volunteer we ask that you chose one, or more days, and make a six month commitment to volunteering. For more information or to apply to be a volunteer please contact Mia, Children’s Residential Advocate at email@example.com
