Intern at Clare Regional Child Advocacy Center

Keeping in mind our mission, Partnering with communities to bring healing, hope and justice to abused children in rural Michigan.

NMAC - Clare Regional provides services to abused and neglected children in Clare and Gladwin Counties at our stand-alone center, located in Harrison, Michigan. Our mobile unit services Missaukee and Gladwin Counties. Through both our stand-alone site and our mobile initiative, the agency provides forensic interviews of alleged victims of child sexual and physical abuse, family advocacy for non-offending caregivers, and multidisciplinary team coordination between community partners responsible for the investigation of child abuse and ongoing treatment and services.

Through our internship program, we hope to positively impact, educate and shape our future leaders while still providing quality, professional services to our clients. We currently accept interns from Central Michigan University, Ferris State University, Saginaw Valley State University, and MidMichigan College.

Interns will revolve around our forensic interviewing, family advocacy, and prevention programs, where they will not only work behind the scenes to improve child abuse investigative intervention and advocacy, but will also work directly with our child and family clients. In addition, interns will also be active in other areas surrounding the nonprofit realm, such as child abuse education, public awareness, marketing, fundraising, and grant writing. As of October 1, 2016, NMAC will have the capacity to supervise two interns per semester, and we have staff qualified to supervise Master’s Level Counseling and Social Work students as well as Bachelor’s Level. Background checks will be conducted on all prospective interns.

We are very excited about this opportunity and partnership and look forward to a long, mutually beneficial future with students. If you or someone you know is interested in an unpaid internship with NMAC - Clare Regional, please email a cover letter and your resume to edeka@mikids.org.
