DCS offers Internship Opportunities!

At the Georgia Department of Community Supervision (DCS), we are committed to creating valuable opportunities for college students through our unpaid and paid internship program. Our program is a dynamic opportunity that goes beyond the classroom to provide college students with hands-on experience and valuable credits. Here are some notable highlights of our internship program:


Unlock Potential, Earn Course Credits:

The DCS Internship Program is strategically designed to offer a blend of challenge and reward, enriching the educational journey while contributing to the agency's goals. It's a win-win for everyone involved.


Statewide Presence:

Spanning Georgia's 50 judicial circuits, our agency proudly extends internship opportunities throughout the state. This immersive experience lets students collaborate with skilled mentors while exploring diverse units within our department.


Guided Growth:

Under the guidance of a Community Supervision Officer, interns undertake a range of responsibilities that facilitate their understanding of Georgia’s probation and parole process. These day-to-day activities contribute to the heart of the DCS mission, providing invaluable assistance.


From Interns to Professionals:

DCS provides an opportunity for upcoming graduates through contingent hires, enabling a smooth transition into becoming active employees. Our selection process for these roles places emphasis on outstanding dedication and performance. We also offer internship opportunities in Finance, External Affairs, Information Technology, and various fields.
